Acclaimed hillwalking writers Ian R Mitchell and George Rodway tell the fascinating story of Aberdeen-born Alexander Kellas, and his contribution to mountaineering from the 20th century to the present day. Now a largely neglected figure, Kellas is the pioneer of high altitude physiology, his climbing routes still in evidence today. Follow Kellas' journey, which takes him from the Scottish Cairngorms to the Himalaya, and discover how his struggles and explorations have impacted upon mountaineering today.

A history of those who have scaled Mount Everest—and the advances in mountaineering over a century. At one time, the summits of the world’s highest peaks—Everest included—were beyond reach. Pioneering attempts to overcome the dangers of climbing at extremely high altitudes ended in failure, sometimes with disastrous consequences. Yet today, high-altitude ascents are frequent, almost commonplace. Everest can be conquered by relatively inexperienced mountaineers, and their exploits barely merit media attention—unless they go fatally wrong. This dramatic history of Everest climbs describes in vivid detail the struggle to conquer the mountain and the advances in scientific knowledge that made the conquest possible. It also offers compelling insight into the science of mountaineering—as well as the physical and psychological challenges faced by individuals who choose to test themselves in some of the harshest conditions on earth.

'The best Everest book I've read since Into Thin Air. Synnott's climbing skills take you places few will ever dare to tread, but it's his writing that will keep you turning pages well past bedtime.' - Mark Adams Veteran climber Mark Synnott never planned on climbing Mount Everest. But a hundred-year mystery lured him into an expedition where a history of passionate adventure, chilling tragedy, and human aspiration unfolded. George Mallory and Sandy Irvine were last seen in 1924, eight hundred feet shy of Everest's summit. A century later, we still don't know whether they achieved their goal of being first to reach the top, decades before Hillary and Norgay in 1953. Irvine carried a camera with him to record their attempt, but it, along with his body, had never been found. Did Mallory and Irvine reach the summit and take a photograph before they fell to their deaths? Mark Synnott made his own ascent up the infamous North Face to try and find Irvine's body and the camera. But during a season described as 'the one that broke Everest', an awful traffic jam of climbers at the summit resulted in tragic deaths. Synnott's quest became something bigger than the original mystery that drew him there - an attempt to understand the madness of the mountain and why it continues to have a magnetic draw on explorers. Exploring how science, business and politics have changed who climbs Everest, The Third Pole is a thrilling portrait of the mountain spanning a century.

This pre-eminent work has developed over six editions in response to man's attempts to climb higher and higher unaided, and to spend more time at altitude for both work and recreation. Building on this established reputation, the new and highly experienced authors provide a fully revised and updated text that will help doctors continue to improve the health and safety of all people who visit, live or work in the cold, thin air of high mountains. The sixth edition remains invaluable for any doctor accompanying an expedition or advising patients on a visit to altitude, those specialising in illness and accidents in high places, and for physicians and physiologists who study our dependence on oxygen and the adaptation of the body to altitude.

Everyone in this world would have experienced obstacles and some,even failure. Apparently, we all acknowledge that success is very intricately linked with obstacles & failure. We are very much aware of many legendary factoids of men and women, who after facing overwhelming obstacles and even dismal failure have attained historic success and resurrected themselves. Yet, everyday millions of men and women across the world do feel depressed at even smallest obstacles. Many Quit their long nurtured dreams, give up goals, destroy relationships, yield to situations, hurt others, hurt themselves, abandon positivity and some, even choose death as an extreme measure, in their attempt to avoid an obstacle or a failure. Effective Obstacle & Failure management is the most sought after capability for any individual to succeed in the current times either in an organizational, family or a community setting. I write this book with immense respect, admiration and fascination I personally have towards all those men and women, who despite all odds and adversity continue to set higher standards for themselves and others. They live with empowering values and beliefs, set grand goals, act with focus to accomplish results, which add value to themselves and others. I do believe with all humility that I belong to this fraternity. I write with my inherent analytical capability to break down complex processes into simple, understandable and applicable methods. I remember my mother telling very early in my life, that 'You learn more from failures than from success' and I have figured very early that success most of the time is the outcome of the past learning from failure. As you read this book from first chapter to the last,you will experience the depth I traveled to bring out the most effective solutions for Obstacle & Failure management for you. This book is the result of two decades of my experiential learning and about fouryears of focused research in this area. I urgeyou to read this entire book and see if there is any obstacle & failure,you cannot manage, ever.

"The year 2000 is the fiftieth anniversary of the ascent of Annapurna, the first of the 8000-meter peaks to be climbed. In the decade following that first ascent in 1950, all but one of the world's fourteen highest mountains were climbed; the period from 1950 to 1960 can be considered the Golden Age for high altitude climbing. Only Shisha Pangma remained unclimbed until 1964 when a Chinese party led by Hsu Ching reached the summit." "This book brings together the stories behind the discovery, exploration and first successful ascents of each of the fourteen highest peaks, as well as accounts of the most important attempts and ascents that followed. Many of these stories illustrate how modern technology has enabled mountaineers to climb the previously unscaled peaks, while still demonstrating the importance of the human element."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
