Colorado climber Jim Davidson e-book recounts escaping Everest earthquake

Tents are not intended to hover.

Not only did Jim Davidson’s hover, it did so with him in it.

Not when, not 2 times, but like a “raft riding on ocean waves,” he wrote in his most recent guide, “The Up coming Everest.”

The e-book, revealed by St. Martin’s Press and established to be launched April 20, recounts his activities surviving the deadly 2015 earthquake and his return in 2017 to productively summit 29,032-foot Mount Everest.

‘Lucky to be alive’: Davidson has escaped death extra than when

Resting in his tent at Camp 1 on April 25, 2015, the climber in Davidson could hear two avalanches crashing down somewhere on Mount Everest. The geologist in him could come to feel the earthquake.

The 1st avalanche did not induce a great deal concern because avalanches are a common prevalence on Everest. But a 2nd avalanche on the other aspect of the slim valley in which Camp 1 resides sounded alarms.
