In the final chapters of the book, many of the survivors are faced with the decision. of whether or not to save their nearly dead team mates.

Including this argument helps Krakauer establish the motives of the surviving climbers.
On February 2, 1959, 9 hikers in the Ural Mountains were brutally murdered, their campsite was completely destroyed, and the leader, Igor Dyatlov, was the result of this event being called, the dyatlov pass incident. There is no real explanation to what happened on that cold dark night on Ural Mountain and this left investigators in the dark with no idea where to turn next, so the case went cold. Books, movies, and videogames were all created with there own theories in mind, but none of these tales could be confirmed. The group of Ural State Technical University graduates thought it was going to be a fun ski trip, but it was far from it.

In April 1992, McCandless hitchhiked from Carthage, South Dakota, to Fairbanks, Alaska. He then hikes along the snow-covered Stampede Trail, McCandless came upon an abandoned bus. He stayed there for 100 days and later died of Starvation, possibly brought on by
Throughout the story “into the wild”, Chris after months of “living off the land” in Alaska, starves to death in his bus after finally finding a moose which gave him hope, but since he had not eaten in days and it was infested with flies and bugs, he passes away. He could not eat the moose without obtaining a disease and getting sick. Likewise, in the short story “to build a fire”, the man is faced against harsh weather conditions of 70 below 0 while walking through the Yukon trail for many hours. After falling in the river, the man sits down underneath a tree, and passes away due to his fire being put out by the snow and limited matches.
However, each time Victor faces the monster he created he becomes very ill and passes out and then falls into a sickness for months. When he wakes from these illnesses his creation is gone and has “traveled somewhere else”, or Victor’s just hallucinating at certain times which is when the creation disappears. This theory makes sense due to the fact that in the book the creature travels to the mountains by foot very easily and travels around various places. Any human wouldn’t be able to travel through the mountains in those conditions with the minimal clothes and food that he had. According to “How Humans Deal With and Survive Extreme Cold” ,by Paul Ward, in the cold with no protection and with the condition Victor’s creation was already in his cells should’ve died due to the blood flow loss and should’ve resulted in at least severe frostbite.
About a quarter way through the lake, they find themselves in a massive snowstorm and must find cover quickly. Torak finds a snow berm with a slight opening and looks around for Renn. She is nowhere to be seen and he assumes she already found cover, so Torak climbs in and seals the entrance. Inside he find an old skeleton holding onto a lamp, and figures that that is the last item, so he takes it and waits out the storm. When the storm calms, Torak goes out and looks for Renn.
In Yukon during the gold rush, a miner named Clay Dilham goes on a search for firewood while leaving his partner doing supper. During his journey, he had spotted a dead tree in the side of a a icy hill. He must climb “up the slide” to reach the tree, although he did not realize how treacherous the way down could be. He had experienced so many obstacles that he had decided that the best way down is going up the hill, which is still not that easy. After many hours, he had finally reached the top which had used much of his energy.
Krakauer ends Into Thin Air by logically developing an argument which explains the deaths of Scott Fischer, the leader of an expedition ascending Everest at the same time as the Adventure Consultant’s expedition, and Yasuko Namba, a client of Adventure Consultants. The storm had rendered both Scott and Yasuko helpless and unable to descend the mountain by their own strength. Consequently, in the final chapters of the book, the surviving leaders must decide between attempting to rescue Scott and Yasuko and “needlessly jeopardizing] the lives of the other climbers” or returning to base camp without the Scott and Yasuko. Realizing that the climbers were “as close to death as a person can be and still breathing” led the leaders to abandon any attempts to rescue either Fischer or Yasuko in the hope of saving the lives of everyone at camp. Including this argument helps Krakauer establish the motives of the surviving climbers.
