This is Anatoli Boukreev’s dramatic personal account of his role on Scott Fischer’s Mountain Madness team and the 1996 Everest disaster. He presents his perspective and sheds new light on the events and his account of the pre-expedition maneuvering for clients, permits, and oxygen makes fascinating reading. He also includes an account of his 1997 Everest ascent as a ‘consultant’ with an Indonesian expedition. Boukreev was killed while attempting Annapurna in December 1997.

This book is from the Phil Hanson Collection. Phil's love of rock and ice climbing transcends to his collection of treasured books. He discovered his passion for the sport later in life, when Henry Barber gave a motivational speech at a sales meeting for the outdoor apparel company he worked for. Phil and Henry became fast friends and cherished the time they spent together climbing in Colorado, Utah, California and the East Coast. Some of Phil's most favorite climbs were in his own backyard of Eldorado Canyon in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to being an avid climber, Phil also loved skiing, fly fishing, and music. Phil spent a lifetime in the outdoor business with Woolrich for 25+ years and Orvis for 3 years.
