Ascent & Dissent is the inside story of the first official South African expedition to the Himalayas, which was marred by dissension and disunity, and ultimately resulted in tragedy and death. Ken Vernon has pulled no punches in this exposé of the deceits, errors of judgement and rash decisions that led to the expedition becoming a scandal across two continents.
