"Mountain-climbing prodigy Peak Marcello faces his toughest challenge yet as he descends into Tibet and goes head-to-head with an old enemy"-- Provided by publisher.
Sequel to: Ascent.
After surviving an avalanche on the remote and isolated mountain of Hkakabo Razi, Peak and his team will have to take a different route, and descend into Tibet. The only catch is that Peak's mountaineering father, Josh, and climbing guide, Zopa, are both wanted by the Chinese government. Making it off the mountain won't be the end of this team's struggles, only the beginning. -- adapted from jacket
