Topic: Peak by Roland Smith

As they started up the mountain Team C would be going up the mountain a very different route from Josh’s expedition. This route was also more difficult. While they were climbing up an ice wall Sun-Jo’s ax broke and no one could reach him as he was barely hanging on. Peak took a very big risk as he hooked on a rope not knowing if it could hold his weight. But he tried it and saved Sun-Jo’s life. One evening they had gotten word that they were sending more Chinese soldiers up the mountain in search of illegal climbers. The next day Zopa had been having a very hard time climbing the mountain, and as they made it to camp four he had decided he would not be going any higher. The plan would then be for Peak, Sun-jo, Yogi, and Yash make it to the summit then Peak would cross into Nepal and go down that way.
