At 8am on 29 May 1996, Cathy O'Dowd, a 30-year-old mountaineer from South Africa, stepped onto the summit of Everest and into history. She had become the first woman to climb the highest mountain in the world from both its south (Edmund Hillary) and north (George Mallory) sides. To achieve this, Cathy has had to face the ultimate risks of Everest. During her first ascent from the south in 1996, she and her team were trapped in the killer storm described in Jon Krakauer's best seller Into Thin Air. They finally reached the summit, only to have the thrill of success snatched away when a team member disappeared on the descent. In 1998 Cathy, attempting the north side of Everest, stopped only a few hundred meters from the summit to try and help a dying American climber. The woman's first words were 'don't leave me'. Yet Cathy eventually had to leave her to save her own life. She made both of these climbs with Ian Woodall (b. 1956) who led the first ascent during which they met and fell in love. They married in 2001. Now Cathy has captured the drama of her Everest climbs, her passion for the challenge of climbing mountains and her love for wild places in this story of her four attempts on the mountain. Cathy tries to answer the question of why, if climbing Everest can be so dangerous, people still want to do it. Featuring a new chapter exclusive to this electronic edition, Cathy shares the previously untold story of her fourth Everest expedition, an attempt to climb a new route on the seldom visited and very risky east face of Everest. Storms, avalanches and crevasses all contributed to an expedition fraught with difficulty. This is a book of challenge, of adventure, of love and life and death. This is Everest, the world's highest mountain, climbed 'just for the love of it'.

There is such a renewed interest in Everest since the movie was released this past year. This book captures the inherent beauty, conditions and dangers involved in high altitude climbing. A fascinating read. The life and death decisions involved on the mountain are ones I hope I never have to face. Its easy to pass judgment on Ms. O'Dowd, but unless you were there you just don't know what you would do. I know I could never make such a climb but I am enraptured by the thrill of it and Cathy O'Dowd brings that thrill to life in this book. Well Done Ms. O'Dowd, Well Done!

Read this book in record time; and thoroughly enjoyed the read. Found Cathy's book very nicely balanced between the description of her ascents on both the South and North face, as well as the team dynamics that played out; especially during the beginning stages of the Everest climb preparation. Having previously picked up on certain facets of the story in 1996, it was good to get a first hand account of Cathy's first time experiences on Everest (South face), which were often portrayed in an apparently unbiased manner, highlighting weaknesses and good points of herself and other team members; as well as giving fair credit to the involvement of the Sherpas who contributed to her successful summitting and (very importantly) descent.

O'Dowd's attempts to climb Mt Everest from 3 sides presents a realistic picture of the struggle "just for the love of it." Her account of the 1996 disastrous climb presents another interesting viewpoint. Having climbed Kilimanjaro and made it to Everest base camp, I was very interested in her own mental struggles as well as the physical challenges. Good read.

At last, climbing book authored by a woman, and a very capable and sensitive one. More technology than I could appreciate but nothing lost when I skipped that. A good read for women of any age who struggle with barriers.

Great description of climbing Mt Everest without going into the minute details of everything they took and the hike in to get to the mountain. I enjoyed the descriptions of getting dressed and efforts to climb. Thanks for giving the Sherpas credit. I liked her explanations of her feelings and outlook on life. I hope I can keep that positive feeling I feel after reading her book. It is not a sappy book, but one written by a confident, successful woman.

Well written personal true story ! Enjoyed the female version of her climbs!

Very high energy. Never realized what goes into climbing Everest or the loss of life. I don't know if I could handle coming upon bodies lost years in the past or know that I could not help a woman who is dying on the mountain. Awesome read.
