Odd Harald Hauge



Explorer of the year, Martin Moltzau, is persuaded by his sponsor, Audi, to climb the Everest to complete his collection of «adventurous trophees» after having conquered both the North and the South Pole earlier on. What Martin hides for his sponsor — and for everyone else — is his paralyzing fear of heights. Martin signs up with a commercial to be led by the legendary British climber Sir Richard Lawrence. The 41 year old Norwegian lawyer meets his fellow expeditioners in Kathmandu: A French mountaineer Celine Blanc, an American Wall Street broker Mark Simmons, an Italian woman named Manuela Franchesi and five of the best Tibethan sherpas in the world. All five have their secret motives for signing up, and before they reach Base Camp the conflicts in the group are piling up. But nothing turns out as they expected.

A thrilling story of five extreme individualists who are forced to trust each other beyond the point of ease.
