Synopsis : Adrenaline Classics continues to bring to the fore the work of the father of modern mountaineering, the celebrated climber and writer, Sir Chris Bonington. EverestThe Unclimbed Ridge is a genuine classic of Everest literature, a book that series editor Clint Willis calls "the real climber's Into Thin Air. " Bonington and coauthor Charles Clarke tell the story of Bonington's most tragic expeditiona bold attempt on the fearsome Northeast Ridge of Everest. This is the expedition that killed two of Bonington's closest friendstwo young men who were part of mountaineering's greatest generation; Joe Tasker and Peter Boardman set out one morning and never made it back. With 24 black-and-white photos and spectacular, edge-of-your-seat climbing, the book offers some of the most moving and powerful moments in modern mountaineering writing. "This was an epic, groundbreaking ascent by one of the most talented teams ever to hit the Himalaya. "Stephen Venables (author of Everest: Alone at the Summit)
