An account of the ill-fated 1996 Rob Hall and Scott Fischer Everest expeditions, which Krakauer took part in as part of an assignment for 'Outside' magazine. Although the parties reached the summit, a powerful storm during their descents led to the deaths of Hall and Fischer, as well as a number of their clients.
