Hornbein named the Hornbein Couloir, a gap/track in the utmost upper part of the north wall, which Hornbein and Unsoeld passed. In his book Into Thin Air, Jon Krakauer writes that "Hornbein's and Unsoeld's ascent was-and continues to be-deservedly hailed as one of the great feats in the annals of mountaineering. In the year 2002 Hornbein, 72 years old, was still active as a Professor of Anesthesiology and as a mountaineer.
