Detailed Product Description

Boston, 1981, 1st edition. 254 pp, color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. 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.
