Mountain climber was 'Dead Lucky'
St. Paul, Minn. — Australian mountaineer Lincoln Hall reached the peak of Mount Everest in 2006. On his way down, he collapsed and was left for dead, only to be found the next morning, sitting on the ridge of the mountain, alive.
His story is the subject of his new book, "Dead Lucky." which he discussed recently at the Commonwealth Club of California.
