The Longest Climb
By

Rating
The Longest Climb is the utterly compelling account of Dominic Faulkner's expedition from the Dead Sea to the peak of Everest. Dominic and his team, EverestMax, were the first ever to make this journey a dangerous one, both politically and personally. Following much of the ancient Silk Road they cycled five thousand miles across Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India on the way to Tibet and the bottom of the world's highest mountain, where they prepared for the climb of their lives. rom escaping the Syrian army and confronting Iranian mullahs, to deciding whether or not to share the little oxygen they have and risk their own lives in order to save another climber, The Longest Climb is a high-octane combination of the huge personal risk, fascinating cultural insight, and momentary farce that make up a major expedition. he Longest Climb is not solely the story of an expedition. It is also the moving account of Dominic's struggle to finally accept the heartbreaking loss of his father when Dominic was just six. As he fights illness, broken equipment, lack of money and the gruelling demands of climbing Everest, Dominic also reflects upon what has driven him up this mount
