Summary
A veteran mountaineer recalls some of his most harrowing and dangerous climbs as he pursues the goal of reaching the summit of the world's fourteen 8,000-meter peaks, detailing his dedication to the philosophy that "getting to the top is optional, getting down is mandatory" while discussing some of his own close calls, rescues, and errors in judgment on the part of fellow climbers
