Detailed Product Description
London, 1950, 1st edition, 312 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket has minor wear at edges. Near Fine. Neate X248.

An incompetent climber leads his party into disaster on an Alpine Peak. 

Ronald Seacombe, an experienced climber, planned to lead his sister on the ascent of the Helm, taking with them Cynthia Hartnoll, an attractive fellow-visitor. In an effort to strengthen the party, Ronald allows at the last minute a complete stranger to join the rope. Only then he learns that the stranger and Cynthia are old - and suspiciously intimate - friends. This exciting story of mounting tension and suspense is told by an author whose knowledge of Alpinism has impressed all readers of his earlier books.
