Climbing Everest

An extract from the bestselling Mud, Sweat and Tears


Formats & editions


Released to coincide with the 60th Anniversary of the first ever ascent of Mount Everest and updated with a new introduction from Bear Grylls.

On the 29th May 1953 Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made history as they took their first triumphant steps on the top of the world.

On 16 May 1998, Bear Grylls followed those same footsteps, achieving a childhood dream and entering the Guinness Book of Records, as the youngest Briton, at 23, to summit Mount Everest.

Taken from his bestselling autobiography, Mud, Sweat and Tears, Climbing Everest tells the gripping story of Bear’s gruelling expedition, one which tested him to his very limits and nearly cost him his life.

About the Author

Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls' prime-time TV adventure series are some of the most watched shows on the planet, reaching an estimated 1.2 billion viewers in over 200 countries. Bear is the host of ITV's Mission Survive and Channel 4's BAFTA winning The Island with Bear Grylls. He is the author of twenty books, including the international number one bestseller Mud, Sweat and Tears.

He originally served as a Trooper with 21 SAS, and subsequently led many record-breaking expeditions to the world's extremes, raising millions of pounds for children's charities. In recognition of this Bear was made an honorary Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy as well as a Colonel in the elite Royal Marines Commandos. He is also currently the youngest ever Chief Scout and an inspirational figure to the 40-million-strong youth movement.

Thanks to revolutionizing his diet, Bear is at the peak of his mental and physical health - as befits doing one of the most demanding adventure 'jobs' on the planet.
