The scene is finally set for Habu's challenge of the South West face of Everest in winter, solo and without oxygen. Fukamachi has accompanied him so far but must now descend to base camp and leave the mountain to Habu. Will Habu make the summit? Will Fukamachi solve the riddle of Mallory's camera? This action packed and nerve jangling culmination to this epic story will leave you just as breathless as if you had climbed Everest yourself!!
Now over 90 years since Mallory and Irvine's disappearance in 1924 and over 15 years since Mallory's body was found on the mountain. Irvine is still missing! Taniguchi's realistic art and Baku's tireless script will take you to such heights that mountaineers only dream of - and may not bring you back.
