Detailed Product Description

Winner of the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountaineering Literature

London, 1988, rare second printing, printed the same year as the 1st printing. 172 pp, 21 b/w and color photos, map, end paper sketch maps. Original black cloth Hardcover with gilt lettering on spine; Dust Jacket, Near Fine condition.

We believe there are only about 2000 copies of the 1st UK edition, therefore the second printing followed almost immediately after the first. This superbly written book contains drama and tension often lacking in expedition reports of this type. Destined to become a classic of Andean literature. Simpson, a skillful climber, and partner Simon Yates achieved a new route on the west face of 21,000' Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. On the descent, disaster struck and Simon was forced to cut the rope, leaving Joe to die in a crevasse. Incredibly, he managed to extricate himself and survive the ordeal. A remarkably written story of friendship and survival.
