Detailed Product Description
Canberra, 2013, 1st edition. 331 pp, 4 color & 12 bw photos, 8 sketches, 4 maps. Pat’s journey to the summit of Everest started with his days as an army cadet at Duntroon and continued through his time as the commander of Climbing Troop at the Special Air Service Regiment. New hardcover with Dust Jacket.

He takes us up Gaurihankar in Nepal in 1980, his apprenticeship; Broad Peak in Pakistan in 1986, his rehearsal for Everest, and finally to Everest in 1988.

Pat and his climbing partner Paul Bayne reached the summit of Everest in May 1988. It was their first attempt to climb Everest and they endured eight and a half days in the Death Zone on the South Col and above.

The expedition to Everest was five years in planning and the team decided to forgo the usual practice of using climbing sherpas. This prompted the Sherpa Sungdare, who at the time had climbed Everest five times, to say to one of the expedition members, ‘You guys are White Sherpas.’ Three members reached the summit and Pat was only able to spend three minutes there.
