Detailed Product Description
Switzerland, 1944, 1st edition. 70 pp, b/w photos. In French. Paperback, Fine condition.

This manifesto was published by the author in January 1944, almost seven years after a tragic adventure at Mont-Blanc from February 7 to 15, 1938. During that week Gallay, Raymond Lambert and Erika Stagni attempted the first winter traverse of the Aiguilles du Diable and paid the high price of lost fingers and toes to frostbite. Galley recounts the tragedy, and paints himself as something of a victim of the ingratitude of his companions.

Wikipedia: The Aiguilles du Diable are a group of five rock needles, all over 4,000 metres high, on the southeast aręte also called the Teufelsgrat or Devil's Ridge of the Mont Blanc du Tacul. The pinnacles lies within the French part of the Mont Blanc Massif in the departement of Haute-Savoie.

A full account of the accident is on the Summit Post website, in English:
