Into the CloudsA tale of survival and brotherhood atop one of the deadliest mountains on EarthThis fast paced three part narrative takes readers on three expeditions over 15 years to K2 one of the deadliest mountains on Earth Roped together these teams of men face perilously high. Kudos to Tod Olson and those who assisted him in bringing this story to life The three unsuccessful attempts to conuer K2 in the Himalayas literally took my breath away Reading about the effects on the body of being above 25000 for an extended period of time made me stop and take a deep breath just to make sure I still could If you have not read this book or other stories about extreme mountain climbers you might wonder why these people risk their live in this way The Authors Note contains an interesting passage about Nirvana in the Death Zone He says They crave moments when the task becomes so difficult it demands total concentration There is no other thought beyond taking that next step or getting that next handhold A uote from Houston the leader of the third expedition in 1953 lends additional clarity I would not deny that the summit matters and matters greatly but I know that the rewards of climbing live in the venture and not alone in the triumph It is the means which calls us to the end not the end which justifies the meansThank you to Scholastic Focus and Edelweiss for a DRC in exchange for an honest review

Make it down the mountain Fourteen years later a man develops blood clots in his legs at 25000 feet leaving his team with no safe path off the mountain Into the Clouds tells the stories of the men whose uest to conuer a mountain became a battle to survive the descen. As a person who couldn't summit Mt Democrat the most easily scaled fourteener in Colorado it's a day hike I am in a mixture of total awe and bemusement at those who climb extreme peaks It has been awhile since I've read any books like this I read Into Thin Air long before I joined GR and that sparked a binge of Mount Everest and Arctic exploration reading that confirmed my sea level status In fact the title of this evoked the Everest story I might've read this in one intense sitting were it not for work I almost stayed up late last night to finish the last thirty pages but put it off till I was awake and refreshed this morning I have promised a full review closer to publication date to a publicist I will just leave this here Breaking my rule to not give stars to give it five I really loved this
