The book follows the career of Guy Cotter, Kiwi mountaineer and mountain guide, who has been leading guided ascents of Mt Everest from the early 1990’s. After the tragic deaths of New Zealanders Gary Ball on Dhaulagiri in 1993 and Rob Hall on Everest in 1996, Cotter rebuilt their company, Adventure Consultants, into a multi-faceted international guiding operation climbing peaks across seven continents.

Cotter provides authentic and riveting behind-the-scenes insight into what actually transpires on the mountain, the huge challenges faced by both guides and climbers, the life and death dramas that inevitably unfold, and his role during the tragic 1996 expedition. Cotter’s three-decade tenure on the mountain has seen the transition of Everest from a mountain available only to national teams and highly sponsored climbing groups to the current era, where everyone who wishes to climb the world’s highest peak can join an expedition.

Cotter is one of the most respected and experienced Everest guides in the world. His remarkable story will appeal to anyone with a taste for adventure, and who wants to know what a high-stakes life really looks like. This is the 27th book regarding the Everest 1996 tragedy either by climbers who were there or others.
