Kropp took a new approach to climbing Everest by starting out from Sweden on his bike in October 1995. Seven months later his first solo summit attempt ended 350 feet short of the top. Following the disastrous storm which claimed a number of lives he succeeded on his second attempt, in the company of renowned sherpa climber Ang Rita, and without the use of supplemental oxygen. He then got on his bike to head back home. This also includes an account of his 1993 ascent of K2 via the Abruzzi Ridge. In 1999 he returned to Everest and made his second ascent. Sadly, he died in a rock climbing accident in 2002 in the US.
