Roberts exposes the further story of the 1950 French Annapurna expedition which was the first to reach the summit of an 8000m peak. Louis Lachenal, Maurice Herzog’s guide, had wanted to turn around on summit day but continued to the summit in light of Herzog’s determination. Both climbers paid a heavy price with severe frostbite.
