Detailed Product Description

Boston, 1981, 1st edition. 254 pp, ills. An attempt on the Breach Wall of Kilimanjaro led to a fall and a broken ankle, then to a rescue and controversy. Hardcover, DJ, Near Fine.

 
SIGNED and Inscribed by Rob Taylor. 

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.
