Everest - The First Ascent: How a Champion of Science Helped to Conquer the Mountain by Harriet Tuckey

Banff Award for Mountain and Wilderness Literature
The British Sportsbook Award for Outstanding General Sports Writing
The Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature
Finalist for the HW Fisher Biographers Prize
 Harriet Tuckey’s book is both the history of what went into the first successful ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953 and a biography of her father, Dr Griffith Pugh, whose role was absolutely pivotal, yet mostly untold. As the expedition’s physiological consultant, Pugh designed almost every aspect of the survival strategy for the expedition, the acclimatization program, the oxygen- and fluid-intake regime, the diet, the clothing and the high altitude boots. Without him and his work, the ascent of Everest would have been impossible.

Conversely, when you pull the bag out of its stuff sack, it takes a while for the bag to fluff out. If you give the bag a few quick shakes this does help to expand it back out more quickly.

The spaciousness is impressive for a tent that's a relatively light 4 pounds, 5 ounces. The vertical walls and asymmetrical shape means there's plenty of headroom to sit up on one end. Under a generous vestibule on either side, Hobbit-hole-shaped doors offer one-handed entry -- some of the time, at least. Even with the tent firmly staked down, it took some finesse to slide the zipper with glow-in-the-dark tabs! Camping at high altitudes with little oxygen reaching their brains, Eddie Bauer's guides found they didn't have the mental processing power required to figure out how to set up their high-end Katabatic tents. So Eddie Bauer color-coded the poles, and the design detail has trickled down to the Stargazer, a decidedly less-hard-core offering.
