Here in one massive volume are Bonington’s three great Everest books – Everest: South West Face, Everest: The Hard Way, and Everest: The Unclimbed Ridge. Chris has spent a long time on Everest and here are the accounts of his three primary expeditions. Everest: South West Face is the official account of the 1972 British Everest South West Face attempt. This expedition forged further than any previous one on this route but still came up short of the summit. (This is probably Chris’ scarcest book.) Much was learned for the successful return trip in 1975, recounted in Everest: The Hard Way. This successful expedition completed the route up the South West Face with Boardman and Scott making the first ascent. In Everest: The Unclimbed Ridge, Chris recounts the 1982 British attempt on the unclimbed Northeast Ridge on which Peter Boardman and Joe Tasker disappeared. This book makes a nice companion to the single-volume collections of Boardman/Tasker, Diemberger, Shipton, Smythe, and Tilman.
