Detailed Product Description
Grenoble, France, Collection 'Aventures extraordinaires,' 1980. 81 pp, 62 color photos, 21 photo portraits, 4 b&W illus, maps. In French. [Yakushi M152.] Account of the French K2-SW Ridge expedition in 1979 who reached 8400 meters, 200 meters shy of the top. The route was called "The Magic-Line."

If this expedition had been successful, it might have been the fourth ascent of K2, the same year that Messner climbed it. The route was finally climbed in 1986, at the same time Alan Rouse and Julie Tullis were dying on the Abruzzi Ridge, plus the famous Italian solo climber, Renato Casarotto.  
Original hardcover with photographic cover and dust jacket, and clear cellophane dust jacket to protect the dust jacket! Fine.

Extra postage will be charged for Priority Mail or International Mail.
