Detailed Product Description
Germany, 1974, 1st edition.Munich: 270 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with worn dust jacket -  book is fine. Near Fine condition.

With an introduction by Luis Trenker and epilogue by Kurt Diemberger.  Hermann Buhl (1924-1957) tells about his mountain trips and in particular his solo on Nanga Parbat. He made the ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1953, and Broad Peak in 1957 with Schmuck, Diemberger and Wintersteller. In the same year he died at the Chogolisa.

Just a few weeks after the successful first ascent of Broad Peak, Buhl and Kurt Diemberger made an attempt on nearby, unclimbed Chogolisa (7665 m) in Alpine style. Buhl lost his way in an unexpected snow storm and walked over a huge cornice on the south-east ridge, near the summit of Chogolisa II (7654 m; also known as Bride Peak), subsequently triggering an avalanche that hurled him down 900 m over Chogolisa's north face. His body could not be recovered and remains in the ice.

Contents: Karwendel, Schüsselkar, Meat Bank, Lalidererwand, Great Pinnacle, Furchetta, Marmolada, Civetta, Grandes Jorasses, Wilder Kaiser, Mont Blanc, Western Pinnacle, Badile, Eiger, Watzmann, Nanga Parbat, Broad Peak, Chogolisa.
