This was an amazing story....I actually like it a lot better than I thought I would. An experienced mountain climber finds himself 80 ft down a glacier crevasse, with a dead climbing partner and manages to live to tell about it. It is not only about the physical challenges, but the emotional and mental challenges he faced, which I found to be the most interesting part.

Kristy Anthony and I climbed Mt. Rainier in 2005 and someone had fallen to their death earlier that year as well by falling in a crevasse. When we were doing more climbing we use to read a lot of these mountain adventure gone wrong books.
