Dark Summit: The True Story of Everest's Most Controversial Season - Nick Heil

I needed a change of pace and mood and topic and this book has been on my shelf for years. 


I really enjoy a good mountaineering story, and so far Heil does a great job setting the scene by describing the history of Everest mountaineering and the difficulties that climbers experience. I'm intrigued how he will portray the story of David Sharp, the climber who was passed by 40 people as he lay dying on the upper slopes of the mountain - when he gets to the core of the book.
