Self told history of Lincon Hall’s climb of Mount Everest in 2006. Includes his dilusionary states as he started the decent, the sherpa’s decision (along with Russian lead at Base Camp) to leave him as unresponsive at 28,000 feet, his halucinations during the process and at night, and the subsequent discovery of him the next morning and the inevitable rescue decent. Also notable in that Dan Mazur was the man who gave up his oxigen to Hall when he was discovered after spending the night on Everest. Dan is the man who led Jason’s accent of Chu Abue and had dinner with both of us in Hong Kong.
