Detailed Product Description
Warsaw, 1982, 1st edition. 120 pp plus 32 pp b/w photos. In Polish, no English translation. Used Softcover with surface wear to cover. Fine condition.

Account of the 1979 Polish-Pakistani expedition to Rakaposhi. This was only the second ascent of the mountain, following the 1958 British ascent, and was done via a new route. It was also the first womens ascent with the two Polish women climbing alone to the summit, thus making the second highest ladies-only climb after that of Gasherbrum II in 1975.

Someone's charming 1982 Christmas card in Polish is included with the book.
