About this book

In 1963, the American Mount Everest Expedition made history – not only as the first American venture to successfully scale the legendary peak, but also as the first successful climb up the hazardous West Ridge (a climb so difficult that no one had – or has since – attempted it). Now, steely-eye adventurer Conrad Anker is leading a climb a celebrate the AMEE anniversary and to spotlight what has changed – and what remains eternal – on Everest, 50 years later. The Call of Everest, published on the 50th anniversary of the AMEE expedition, takes you there as never before, exploring the history, culture, and science of the world's tallest peak – its ancient meaning, its ever-present challenges, and its future in a world of disappearing ice.

Conrad Anker is famous for succeeding at death-defying ascents in the Himalaya and Antarctica. In 1999 he discovered George Mallory's body, the legendary British climber who disappeared on Everest. Mark Jenkins writes about remote expeditions for National Geographic and many other magazines. His dispatches from Everest on the legacy climb will form part of this book's narrative.
