This revised edition of Siggins 1994 edition not only recalls the ground-breaking success of the 1993 Irish expedition which placed the first Irishman atop Everest via the North Ridge, but also chronicles many Everest achievements since – the first summit by an Irishwoman, Clare O’Leary, Pat Falvey’s ascents by two different routes, and Noel Hanna’s fifth ascent. Other highlights include ascents of Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Broad Peak, K2, the first Irish person to walk to the South Pole, and the first east-west circumnavigation of the Arctic in a small yacht. In conclusion, Siggins reflects on the perspectives of the original eight climbers and on how a trend towards individual achievement and commercialism has left its mark on the Himalaya.
