Detailed Product Description
2011, 1st edition. 224 pages with 100s of charts and tables. Large (10'' high) trade paperback, New condition. 

SIGNED by Richard Salisbury 

What are the most dangerous Himalayan peaks to climb? What are the safest? When is the best time of year to climb?

These and many other questions are answered in The Himalaya by the Numbers, a comprehensive statistical analysis of climbing activity, ascents and fatalities in the Nepal Himalaya.

The analyses cover three periods of climbing:

1950-1969 - The expeditionary period
1970-1989 - The transitional period and
1990-2009 - The commercial period
 
The data are analyzed in several categories including climbing season, expedition years (changes over time), geographical regions of Nepal, age groups, gender, citizenship, and team size and composition.

In addition, fatalities are analyzed for both members and hired personnel by causes of death with special emphasis given to avalanches, falls and physiological factors. Time of day and distance from the summit also also examined for climbing accidents. Special emphasis is given to the most popular commercial peaks, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and Everest.
