The epic story of Sweeney’s and Dave Nyman’s 1989 attempt on Alaska’s Mount Johnson and its 2400’ tall ‘Elevator Shaft’. A 90-foot fall fractured Sweeney’s hip leading to an eight-day self-rescue. They endured being buried by multiple avalanches, crevasse falls, solo glacier travel, loss and destruction of gear, and a plane crash. That they survived was due to their tenacity, Nyman’s heroics, and lots of luck. This is a great survival story.
