Viesturs recounts his most harrowing climbs & reveals a man torn between the safe world and the majestic & deadly places. He has an unyielding motto, 'Getting to the top is optional. Getting down is mandatory.' With this in mind, he vividly describes fatal errors made by his fellow climbers as well as his own close calls & gallant rescues. He also details his own pivotal and heroic role in the 1996 Everest disaster made famous in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air.
