When Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stepped onto the summit of Everest on 29th May 1953, they caught the imagination of the world. But they did not conquer the mountain alone. Their success stood on the cooperative efforts of an entire team. This expedition, led by John Hunt, was a model of what siege-style climbing should be and was recognized as such. It provided the blueprint for first ascents of many 8,000 meter peaks in the following decade. From the expedition's meticulously planned beginning to its euphoric finish, The Ascent of Everest captures all the emotion and spirited effort of the many who made this historic ascent a success. Today Everest has been climbed via all its formidable ridges and each of its great faces. It has been summited without supplementary oxygen; it has been climbed solo; mountaineers have parapented off it. But the first ascent remains a classic story of mountaineers pushing new thresholds in the sport, as they reach out to achieve the highest point in the world.
