Conefrey tells the story of the first ascent of Kangchenjunga the third highest but reputedly the hardest mountain in the world. It was an astonishing achievement for a British team led by Everest veteran Charles Evans. Drawing on interviews, diaries and unpublished accounts, Conefrey begins his story in 1905 with the first, disastrous attempt on the mountain by a team led by Aleister Crowley, explores the three dramatic German expeditions of the the late 1920s, and brings it all to a climax 50 years later with the first ascent by Joe Brown and George Band. This is the final installment of Conefrey’s acclaimed high-altitude trilogy.
