On 30 January 1981 Joe Tasker and Ade Burgess stood at 24,000 feet on the west ridge of Mount Everest. Below them were their companions, some exhausted, some crippled by illness, all virtually incapacitated. Further progress seemed impossible. Everest the Cruel Way is Joe Tasker's story of an attempt to climb the highest mountain on earth - an attempt which pushed a group of Britain's finest mountaineers to their limits. The goal had been to climb Mount Everest at its hardest: via the infamous west ridge, without supplementary oxygen and in winter. Tasker's epic account vividly describes experiences which no climber had previously endured. Close up and personal, it is a gripping account of day to day life on expedition and of the struggle to live at high altitude. Joe Tasker was one of Britain's best mountaineers. He was a pioneer of lightweight, Alpine-style climbing in the Greater Ranges and had a special talent for writing. He died, along with his friend Peter Boardman, high on Everest in 1982 while attempting a new and unclimbed line. Both men were superb mountaineers and talented writers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Intense and Intimate Account of High Altitude Mountaineering 29. August 2014
Von Ninevin - Veröffentlicht auf
A gripping read by a talented author made poignant by his untimely death on Everest a year or so later. The etext was full of punctuation errors.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Another good expedition account from Tasker 8. Juli 2015
Von Peter E. McGinn - Veröffentlicht auf
I enjoyed this account of a winter Mt. Everest expedition, though not as much as I did Tasker's earlier book, "Savage Arena." I am not even sure why, except that this book seem slightly less personal and more of an "official" expedition book rather than a personal narrative. There are personal elements for sure, but - well, like I said, I am not even sure exactly why.

But it is just a slight difference for me, and still makes this book much better than most of the mountaineering books I have read. I like his apparent honesty in admitting his own failings, both physical at times of extreme technical difficulties or emotional in getting along with climbing teammates. This book starts out a bit dry with some history and an overview of Everest, but it soon picks up speed, so stick with it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Poor grammar makes this a "cruel" read. 10. Februar 2015
Von Patent Maven - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
I cannot recommend this book. The grammar is absolutely atrocious to the point of making it "cruel" to read. For example, the author sprinkles commas so indiscriminately that it is difficult to read even a single paragraph without getting frustrated. In addition, the scene changes from Camp 1 to Camp 3 and back again with no warning, so one never quite knows where the action is taking place. Of course, this should take nothing away from Joe Tasker' incredible skill and bravery and his tragic death on Everest.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Astonishing brutal account 18. Juli 2015
Von A. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
A wonderful book for anyone fascinated by the history of climbing. This story of an attempt to climb Everest in winter is totally absorbing, especially given the fact that author Joe Tasker was to die on the mountain a few years later. It's a great insight into what it's like to be a part of a small expedition. The tensions and closeness between the climbers, their relations with other teams, and problems with support staff are all issues along with the hardships ( understatement!) of the climbing.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Everest West Ridge 1. April 2014
Von Suzanne Collins - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Loved this book. Climbers made a huge effort to climb Everest West Ridge in winter. Wonderful details of the climb with the terrible winds and snows, snow caves to try to survive in, and various illnesses plagued the expedition. After 3 months, they had to make a decision as to whether to continue trying to summit. Read the book to see if they were successful or not!
