Detailed Product Description

Boston, 1981, 1st edition. 254 pp, color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. May be Ex Lib. Very Good to Near Fine. 

An attempt on the Breach Wall of Kilimanjaro led to a fall and a broken ankle, then to a rescue and controversy. 

This is the account of the author's attempted ascent of the Icicle Route on the Breach Wall of Kilimanjaro. Author was injured in a fall from the icicle. Controversial rescue & conflict ensued. Taylor uses a pseudonym in this book for his partner, Henry Barber. This is a good read despite being somewhat weird in places. The first ascent of this route was completed later by Reinhold Messner.
