Stephen Venables: Four Men On A Mountain - Everest The Hardest Way
Two Americans, one Canadian and one Briton – alone on the biggest wall of the world’s highest mountain. No high altitude porters, no ladders, no oxygen, no satellite phone, no radios. And no hope of outside help if anything went wrong. But they succeeded on a spectacularly difficult new route up the East Face, with Stephen Venables becoming the first Briton to reach the summit without supplementary oxygen. He also, unintentionally, set a new record for surviving a night alone in the open at extreme altitude. In this spellbinding and beautifully illustrated 30th anniversary talk he recount one of the most remarkable ascents of Everest.
‘Probably the most adventurous ascent in Everest’s history.’ Reinhold Messner
