EVEREST GRAND CIRCLE

A Climbing and Skiing Adventure through Nepal and Tibet

Set a world record making a first ascent in winter in the Himalaya, climb and ski over 5 passes about 22,000 feet high, wander off the only map and get truly lost in Tibet before the time of GPS, live in caves for days without food, get lost again in Nepal looking for civilization, on this eduro expedition of 4 months at high altitude on the Everest Grand Circle expedition. This expedition book is written by the lone female on the expedition in tandem with the other co-leader, Ned Gillette. This enlightens the reader about both male and female points of view as the voices alternate throughout the book, sometimes describing the same event, quite differently. Find out who makes it all the way around Everest, in the first ever, record setting expedition, and who does not!

"Climbing Everest has almost become commonplace but circumnavigating the mountain remains a unique achievement. Jan Reynolds and Ned Gillette, in doing this on cross country skis and with a bold winter ascent of Pumori thrown in, have achieved a varied adventure tinged with humor and narrow escapes. This book tells entertainingly of an Everest story with a real difference". Sir Chris Bonnington, Knighted British Mountaineer and Author
