Detailed Product Description
UK, 1980, 1st UK edition. 271 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

Noted German climber who died on Nanga Parbat in 1934. A biographical study of the collected writings of Willo Welzenbach who was Germany's foremost alpinist between the two World Wars, and whose life was cut short when he was killed on Nanga Parbat in 1934 at the age of thirty-three. During his short life he climbed 949 peaks and made 43 first ascents.

He successfully applied rock climbing equipment aids to ice climbing and secured for himself a position as the founder of modern ice climbing techniques. Between conquering all the major faces in the Glockner region, he found time to make 17 first ascents in the Wetterstein during which he devised a new scale of technical difficulties which has formed the basis for grading ever since. Eric Roberts, the author of this book had just delivered the manuscript to his publisher when he died on Annapurna. He too was 33 years old.
