Mutiny on the Mountain

Six men from Europe, Russia and America set off for arguably the most hard-to-reach place on earth, with the intention of scaling one of the world’s highest unclimbed mountains, Ulugh Muztag (translated from Tibetan, ‘The Great Ice Mountain’). It’s taken years of negotiations with the Chinese authorities to be allowed into the region. But as they set out across the Taklimakan Desert, and head up to the Tibetan plateau, the challenge is not simply to defeat the mountain: The adventure takes its toll on all of them, and becomes the ultimate test of human nature. Can their leader hold the team together, or will it all end in tears? This is quite definitely the modern-day version of ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’
