DARK SUMMIT The True Story of Everest's Most Controversial Season

by | Read by David Drummond

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

As David Sharp lay dying on Mount Everest in the climbing season of 2006, he was passed by more than 40 people. Nick Heil looks into the events surrounding Sharp's death and the surprising rescue of another climber, Lincoln Hall. Narrator David Drummond stresses the ironies and dramatic moments in Heil's work, while remaining evenhanded as Heil considers whether Sharp could have been saved. Drummond’s voice work humanizes the key figures—most notably Aussie Hall and New Zealander Russell Brice, a larger-than-life figure prominent among Everest expedition leaders. At times chilling, Heil's account of the tragic spring of 2006 is compelling as it delves into the issues of compassion and responsibility. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
