Five weeks after reaching Base Camp in Tibet, he began his push for the summit. After three days of climbing higher into the oxygenless air, he was blessed with a perfect summit day.

Early the next day, Dan Mazur, an American mountaineering guide with two clients and a Sherpa, was star show less 422 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.
