Back in 1992, New Zealand’s intrepid mountaineer, Robert “Rob” Edwin Hall, started guiding amateur climbers on Mount Everest. With his company named “Adventure Consultants”, he successfully led 19 clients to the summit without a single fatality–and his 1996 Everest expedition, which consisted of eight clients and three guides–was the perfect example about the increasing demand for expeditions to the Everest. As a result, on 11 May 1996, Rob’s team was joined by Scott Fischer’s “Mountain Madness” company on a joint summit attempt, only to come face to face with the omnipotence of nature. In the end, when a furious blizzard struck, disaster was at hand.
