Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
UK, 2020, 1st edition. 315 pp, ills. The Last Great Mountain tells the story of the early attempts to climb Kangchenjunga the third highest mountain in the world. Then in 1955 it was finally climbed by  strong British team. It was an astonishing achievement for the team led by Everest veteran Charles Evans. New hardcover with Dust Jacket.

Drawing on interviews, diaries and unpublished accounts, Mick Conefrey begins his story in 1905 with the first, disastrous attempt on the mountain by a team led by Aleister Crowley, explores the three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.)
