9 Legendary Bivouacs

Hours of darkness and cold, without a tent, sometimes without a sleeping bag, hell, sometimes without even a decent puffy jacket. On the descent, the men dug a tiny snow cave above 18,000 feet and spent March 1 there in a blizzard. Scott and Bonington waited five days at base camp while Anthoine ran ahead to organize porters to carry Scott out. Simpson spent a night inside the crevasse as Yates, figuring his partner was dead, descended to their base camp. They were left for dead 300 yards from camp, Weathers’ hands and face exposed.
