Ok, I've just broken the 200 page mark. I'm not sure what the point of this book is. All of the chapters kinda read the same:
"They/he start(s) climbing, there will be a scene of distress, they/he descend(s) the mountain. The End."
There is nothing in the narration that tells me anything about the mountain, the individual challenge, the climbers involved, ... or anything else that might be interesting.
