Lincoln Hall (OAM) was one of Australia's best known mountaineers. His high-altitude climbing career, which spanned three decades, culminated in his key role in the first Australian ascent of Mt Everest in 1984, and his book White Limbo was an international bestselling account of this first Australian ascent. Lincoln lived in the Blue Mountains with his wife, Barbara, and their two sons. He died aged 56 in March 2012.
'The best book about mountaineering ever … It should be read by everyone who still understands the spirit of human endeavour, courage and sacrifice and who holds adventure in their heart.' Sunday Telegraph
