"I got hooked on the Everest story on netflix ,when i ran out of things to watch and started watching Everest: Beyond the Limit and was hooked, i like the old time climbers before they had all the weather reports,ladders and big old air tanks.
I publish Mountaineering books on the kindle and sell a lot of them which surprised me, so i know i am not the only one who loves them, my favorite stories are the George Mallory expeditions, i believe he made it to the summit but did not make it back to the finish line, he is a true trail blazer and i could never or want to do it, hence the title (Armchair Mountaineer)"

Hi P,

I bet you'd like this one, too - it's about the 1953 expedition to K2 - an expedition my dad was on. If you've ever heard climbers talk about "The Belay" - this is the expedition where Pete Schoening's great belay saved my dad's life, as well as the lives of four other climbers...
