Everest the Hard WayChris and his team make a second assault on Everest via that tricky South West face. All the usual high altitude drama with collapsing seracs in the Khumbu icefall, establishing camps, ferrying supplies and dealing with the rock band. Mick Burke dies on this one.

Great read. I'm sure I can remember Mick Burke's death from an episode of Blue Peter, but it was 1975 so I can only have been 5 years old, so maybe not.
