to ead this synnott takes the time toread this Synnott takes the time to context for why Everest became famous and why it continues to draw crowds despite its commercialization But than that he provides an honest first hand account of being on the mountain in 2019 with all it s politics and modernizations The narrative swaps between ecounting the 1924 expedition and the events that lead to Synott being part of an expedition whose goal was not to summit but to find the body of Sandy Irvine I found both storylines compelling Even if you are well acuainted with the story of Mallory and Irvine I think you would still enjoy this book for some of the new information and its insightful look at the 2019 season Perhaps my favorite part of the book was the exploration of the uestion why climb Everest Synnott doesn t seem to know the answer since he had never been obsessed with the highest peak So he introduces us to other climbers both past and present and tells their stories He brings us to Base Camp

Mt Everest 29 YearsEverest 29 years to Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Synnott writes a compelling story that combines the 2019 season on Everest historical attempts to climb Mt Everest and mountaineering culture as a whole Although I personally enjoyed every aspect of the book it is a long book and there are parts of the book where the lay eader may lose interest For example I had followed Cory Richards and Topo s 2019 attempt at a never before climbed oute but the time spent discussin. Or the top Could they have succeeded decades before Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Irvine is believed to have carried a Kodak camera with him to ecord their attempt but it along with his body had never been found Did the frozen film in that camera have a photograph of Mallory and Irvine on the summit before they disappeared into the clouds never to be seen again Kodak says the film might still be viable Mark Synnott made his own ascent up the infamous North Face along with his friend Renan Ozturk a filmmaker using drones higher than any had previously flown Readers witness first hand how Synnott's uest led him from oxygen deprivation traini. ,
G Richards troubled childhood seemed a little out of place in this book All in all I highly ecommend The Third Pole for fans of mountain climbing or who want to know Why climb Everest I know that I am never going to climb Everest but this well esearched and uite gripping book made the back of my head tingle a bit with a desire to experience it Not Synnott did this climb to find a camera and perhaps the body of Andrew Irvine who along with George Mallory may have summited in 1924 He s detailed both *MEN S LIVES AS WELL AS *s lives as well as is known about their efforts but what made this different and valuable for me was the information about the egion He examines not just the mountain but also the politics of the egion Best of all the details about the climb which was made during the infamous 2019 season This is much expansive than other books about climbing Everest and I learned a great deal Synnott has a good way with building tension and his writing will pull you in and keep you turning the pages Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC Armchair adventurers will love this one This was an interesting look into Mark s uest to find the body of Sandy Irvine who was lost on Everest in 1924I like that there is a history of stories throughout the book
