As they prepare the ascent, unforeseen pressures mount: from Tinnions lover, who has left her husband to join him- from a too curious, menacing German photographer- and from a rival Italian team. In a breathtaking climax, Tinnion is forced to weigh survival against loyalty, neutrality against love and friendship, and to recognise ominous parallels with the looming global conflict.
