REVIEW Into Thin Air A Personal Account of the Mt Everest Disaster CHARACTERS Ö PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ☆ Jon Krakauer Jon Krakauer ☆ 1 READ Luding Krakauer's in guilt ridden disarray would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disast. This book suddenly became very relevant no less than TEN climbers have died this week 18 25 May 2019 on Everest The reason for this horrible turn of events is given as inexperienced guides leading inexperienced climbers combined with the usual weather restrictions leading to these ghastly insane ueueing situations Yes that s the top of the highest mountain in the world Anyway original review follows TEENAGE HAIR KISSING BOOK DEFACERSThis is the most defaced book I ever read It must have been used in a school at one point Up to page 69 there are two different people highlighting passages in pink and green but then in the margins suddenly there is this Katie is Eric s fave to bad for him he is silly I hope he s a good kisserAnd then on page 77 which otherwise would be blank This is the most boring book I have ever read I swear if anyone read this book by choice they are the biggest idiot in the worldJason is such a dorkJonathan has been a fag latelyI HATE THIS BOOKIt will be funny when you ask Jason if he kisses ouryour hair Ask is he kisses your hair then if he kisses anyone elses hairAlways SpicyOn page 88 in a different hand we read Eric Conner Feb 24 2000 he asked me outAnd on page 107 Troy is hot but I never said that And her friend writes We should go to the movies you me Troy Eric coz they re friends Troy s hot so you could have fun Okay I will spare you the rest There s a poignant contrast between this dreamy teen hair kissing and the terror stricken narrative that Jon Krakauer patiently lays down here It s clear that the teenagers just didn t connect to the story and in some ways I can see why In an attempt to be scrupulously correct JK almost turns the events which killed eight people on Everest on 10 11 May 1996 into a stolid police report THE GULF OF COMPREHENSION BETWEEN MOUNTAINEERS AND NORMAL PEOPLEMountaineers voluntarily put themselves in harm s way spend loads of money on their own obsessive self centred dreams and then expect to be congratulated by the rest of us for their feats Lugging your mortal flesh into very high altitudes is madness There was no forgetting that we were than three miles above sea level Walking left me wheezing for several minutes If I sat up too uickly my head reeled and vertigo set in The deep rasping cough I d developed worsened by the day Sleep became elusive Most nights I d wake up three or four times gasping for breath feeling like I was suffocating Cuts and scrapes refused to heal My appetite vanished my arms and legs gradually began to wither to sticklike proportions This was at 16200 feet The summit of Everest is 29000 feet The further you go up the likely you are to get HAPE high altitude pulmonary edema where you froth blood lapse into a coma and die or HACE High altitude cerebral edema where you become deranged lapse into a coma and die Krakauer is also keen to deny that mountaineers are adrenalin junkies We lubbers may imagine that when they get to the summit they experience some great euphoria Not at all he says Getting up a mountain is grinding your way through great pain in the knowledge that getting back down from the summit is dangerous than getting up to it Mountaineering does not sound like a healthy outdoor pursuit to meTHE MOUNTAINEERING CLASS SYSTEM Climbing the big mountains like Everest is very dangerous but it s popular A lot of ridiculous rich white people want to do it So they join guided expeditions On an Everest expedition there are three classes of peopleThe guides these are the white expert mountaineers who organise everything and guarantee client safetyThe clients these are the rich white people who have nothing better to do We know they are rich because it costs an arm and a leg to be a member of an Everest expeditionThe Sherpas these are the Nepalese guys who do the actual manual labour of lugging all the rich white people s food and essentials from base camp to camp 2 to camp 3 to camp 4 and back again along with making sure the white people don t kill themselves in the fifty different ways available to them Sherpas put in the route set up the camps did the cooking hauled all the loads This conserved our energy and vastly increased our chances of getting up Everest This enforced client passivity earns these guided expeditions great contempt in other radical mountaineering circles That s not really climbing a mountain at all they say These rich clients have no mountaineering skills themselves It s like herding rich white sheep And some of the haughty sneerers also say that using oxygen tanks is cheating too They say that you can only say you ve climbed Everest if you do it without Sherpas and without oxygen And guess what some of these hard core guys have gone right ahead and climbed Everest without Sherpas and without oxygen and when they got to the top they looked down on everyone else you can bet your lifeTHE TURN ROUND TIME Into Thin Air is sometimes flawed by not explaining important concepts clearly enough for us non climbers One crucial concept was the TURN ROUND TIME This was a big part of why eight people died and it took me a while to work out why On the day your team is going to reach the summit the guide will announce a turn round time usually 2 pm This means that wherever the client is they must turn round and begin descending at that time even if they haven t reached the summit yet They might be only 30 minutes away but they must turn round and start descending How ultimately frustrating There were several companies guiding clients to the summit on 10 May 1996 and one of them was new and very keen to get all of its clients to the summit So keen that they allowed some stragglers to continue to the summit up to 4pm that day According to JK this contributed to some clients getting swallowed up in the sudden blizzard that hit the summit in the afternoon No one saw it coming But there was a whole tangle of wrong decisions that day including some made by JK himself It s a complicated picture but to complicate it further at least one other book has been published slagging off the conclusions and accusations made by JK in this book So a self inflicted confused disaster many of the details of which are disputed At the end of it all I was convinced than ever that I will never ever understand the motivations of many of my fellow human beings So Much Life Left Over have died this week 18 25 May 2019 on Everest The reason for this Twentieth Century Classical Music horrible turn of events is given as inexperienced guides leading

REVIEW Into Thin Air A Personal Account of the Mt Everest Disaster CHARACTERS Ö PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ☆ Jon Krakauer Jon Krakauer ☆ 1 READ Saw nothing that suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down He was wrong The storm which claimed five lives and left countless inc. Into Thin Air or Injustice of many kinds on the MountainUntil almost the end this book was exactly as I expected it to be with just one exception It was the story of a journalist climbing Mount Everest both as a journalist and as a mountaineer Ideal getting paid to do your hobby It was interesting because Krakauer is a damn good writer and because its fascinating to see the details of how the mountain is climbed It s also disappointing because few individuals do it by themselves without a major support like the guy who bicycled all the way around Europe to Nepal and then climbed the mountain alone I would have liked to have read his story but it was only alluded to in the book I later read his book Ultimate High My Everest Odyssey For everyone else its a package tour for the fit and not necessarily experienced who want to climb Everest and have an awful lot of spare cash Transport is arranged tents are set up luggage is carried there will be steaming hot tea awaiting the climbers on their return to their tents after an expedition and if they really can t climb well they can be short roped and pulled up Short roped is the climber roping themselves with a less than one metre rope to the waist of the would be climber and literally hauling them up Still even with all this portering and pampering I was surprised that the first climbers of the season using last year s ropes fitted ropes up Everest so that the climbers didn t have to set their own More than that the really difficult bits got ladders installed But no matter how many shortcuts and easements they are able to achieve there are two things that can neither be predicted nor controlled One is altitude sickness which in some forms can kill very uickly and in others causes mental delusions that led one of the team to his death And the other is the weather 15 climbers died the year Krakauer climbedAt the beginning of this review I mentioned there was one exception to my expectations for this book based on several books I have read by this author The exception was one extraordinary chapter full of the most vituperative nastiness against a socialite climber I didn t know why it was there He didn t get any nicer towards her as the book progressed either but then he said that when he was writing the book he had a 75 minute phone conversation with her Either she didn t know what he d written I would never bother wasting time on someone who had that little respect for me and intended to tell the world or he didn t write it until after the phone conversation My only reaction to the chapter was thinking that the author was such a damn bitchThe last chapter was tremendously interesting Krakauer had not had much respect for another of the climbers the guide and tour leader Anatoli Boukreev He felt that Boukreev was fulfilling his own ambitions of climbing than in sticking to his job of helping others to climb and looking after their safety Boukreev wrote his own book saying that Krakauer had not mentioned certain incidents somewhat detrimental to himself and that he had made some observational errors either through oxygen deprivation or wilfullness and gave his own version of the climb This argy bargy went back and forth in print and on tv and this chapter is Krakauer defending himself Sadly Boukreev a climber par excellence was buried under an avalanche on Annapurna the following year in 1997 so we will never get to hear what he thought of Krakauer s defenceThe book is worth reading because the Sherpas have always been sidelined in stories of climbing Everest As if it is somehow praiseworthy for a White man to climb the mountain and its nothing really for the Sherpas who can just hop up and down like monkeys carrying all the loads while the white man Climbs This book sets the record straight The mountain could not be the business it is without the Sherpas The tour companies and guides have enormous respect for these men and their abilities and form as firm friendships with them as they do with anyone else in their lives Its a shame that this respect doesn t extend to paying them than the one tenth they earn compared to the tour guides but of course its justified in the traditional way this is local wages this is a lot of money for the locals the locals don t need the things the guides from America Australia etc do Oh YAWN I ve heard it all before
