Detailed Product Description
UK, 2020, 1st edition. 315 pp, ills. New hardcover with Dust Jacket.

The Last Great Mountain tells the story of the early attempts to climb Kangchenjunga the third highest mountain in the world. In 1955 it was finally climbed by strong British team. It was an astonishing achievement for the team led by Everest veteran Charles Evans.

Drawing on interviews, diaries and unpublished accounts, Mick Conefrey begins his story in 1905 with the first, disastrous attempt on the mountain by a team led by Aleister Crowley, explores the three dramatic German expeditions of the the late 1920s and brings it all to a climax 50 years later with the first ascent by Joe Brown and George Band. The Last Great Mountain is the final installment of Mick Conefrey's acclaimed high altitude trilogy. In previous books he also chronicled the climbing history of Mount Everest and K2.
