The amount of time it take to prepare for climbing Mount Everest and the amount of time it takes to actually climb Mount Everest is grueling.
The process of reading about it can also be grueling.
In Blind Descent, you will read about both the preparation and the climb.
The preparation story is too-detailed, entirely. It is breathtaking to read, but not in the awe-struck sense…rather in the suffocating sense. The 2/3 of the book on preparation can be a book itself, on preparing for Mount Everest.
However, the remaining 1/3 of the book is breathtaking in adventure and awe of the might and magnitude of climbing the beast of Everest.
There you have it. Two books in 1. Two parts prep. One part adventure.
