The Everest Files: A Short (and Turbulent!) Trip to the Top of the World

Hay Festival 2014, 

Is chaos descending on Mount Everest? Why are Sherpas and Westerners fighting on the slopes? How come the Nepalese authorities have had to put an army post at base camp? And what about the ever-younger age of climbers? Do 13-year-olds really belong in this lethal place? Everest Summiteer Matt Dickinson discusses these dramatic changes and presents a fact-filled journey to the top of the world’s highest mountain. He also discusses his new teen novel The Everest Files, which follows an Everest expedition from the point of view of a 16-year-old Sherpa climber.
