This climb of the North Face is written from a similar perspective as Jon Krakauer's
Into Thin Air and David Breashar's High Exposure -- all three went along with their
to document the climb (Dickinson to film the British Expedition on the North Face,
Krakauer to write, and Breashars to film the IMAX version) and
both were among the only people in their groups to complete the climb. While
Dickinson's team ran into no serious problems, his viewpoint is interesting.
