EVEREST - THE HARD WAY
Is it possible to climb the hardest route on Mount Everest in Alpine style? Sir Chris Bonington, the most famous British climber, named this route “The Hard Way” and called it impossible. It became something of a personal challenge for four Slovak climbers. In 1988 they started out on their hardest way with no chance of escape.
