Detailed Product Description

London or Pennsylvania, 1992 1st UK or 1991 1st US edition. 211 pp, illustrated with color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

SIGNED by John Roskelley on the title page.


Leading American alpinist John Roskelley writes about his climbs in the Himalaya, Tawoche (1989) and Menlungtse (1990), and the people of Nepal and Tibet. Roskelley, one of mountain climbing's more prominent figures, describes two of his Himalayan climbs: Tawoche's East Face in Nepal (summited 1984) and Menlungste's Southeast Ridge in Tibet (attempted 1990).

In addition to detailing the climbs, Roskelley offers his climbing ethics: a quick alpine-style climb is preferable to porter-supported battering of the route by teams of climbers; depend on skill and experience; opt out when luck is given too big a part in the climb. His point of view is that of a family man approaching middle age, yet his language is that of latter-day climbers. Roskelley's son Jess, along with Austrian climbers David Lama and Hansjrg Auer, died in a climbing accident on Howse Peak, Canada in April 2019.
