Detailed Product Description
Munich, 1981. 383 pp, 284 b/w photos. In German. New paperback.

The Glass Horizon is how the mighty massif of Mount Everest presented itself to Reinhold Messner when, after a kilometer of jeep travel and weeks of walking from nomad camp to nomad camp, he approached the snowy peaks of the Himalayas. In 1979, Messner learned that the Japanese mountaineer Naomi Uemura had been given permission to climb Mount Everest single-handedly in the winter of 1980/81. He has only one goal - he must forestall him.

Messner acts immediately, and he manages to obtain an expedition permit for the period from June to the end of August 1980. Once before, Reinhold Messner stood on the summit of Everest. That was in 1978. Now he will go a second time, again without artificial oxygen, but this time without a climbing partner, without a fixed bearing chain, without porters and on a new route on the Tibetan side.

Messner's report on the alpinistic sensation of his solo ascension not only describes the struggle for survival in the face of nature's daunting challenges, such as monsoon towers, crevasses and the oxygen-deficient air at 8,000 meters, but also of the adventures of the psyche at the limits of human resilience and the mystical experience of solitude in icy nature.
