Acoording to Krakauer, he accepted the opportunity immediately.

The magazine decided to send a writer up with Hall’s team to report on the phenomenon. To my surprise, I was asked to write the piece. When the call came to join Hall's expedition, I said, “Yes,” without even hesitating to catch my breath. Boyhood dreams die hard, I discovered, and I immediately set out to scale Mount Everest with Rob Hall’s expedition.
