Publisher Description

No one could fail to be gripped by his heartfelt excitement and emotion over what was the adventure of a lifetime' – Independent

At the age of 23, a young challenger named Bear Grylls set out to defy nature's mightiest peak, Mount Everest. With the relentless drive to conquer and a heart weighed down by a past marred by a life-threatening accident, Grylls overcame the obstacles to become one of the youngest Britons to claim Everest's summit.

The expedition, chronicled in Facing Up, was marked by uncompromising weather, debilitating fatigue, severe dehydration, and sudden illnesses. Yet, Grylls' determination never wavered, his spirit and humour pushing him through every obstacle in his path.

Facing Up isn't just a narrative of a dangerous mountaineering adventure, but a testament to enduring friendships, unyielding faith, and resilience against impossible odds. Join Grylls in his Himalayan adventure, an all-consuming ride, from base camp to summit, that will leave you breathless and dare you to chase your own Everest.
