New York, 1957, 1st US edition. 224 pp, 25 plates plus maps. Includes index. Blue cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket or no jacket. Both jacket and book have some wear. Near Fine.

First ascent of Lhotse and the 2nd of Everest by the Swiss. The main summit of Lhotse was first climbed on May 18, 1956 by the Swiss team of Ernst Reiss and Fritz Luchsinger from the Swiss Mount Everest/Lhotse Expedition. On May 12, 1979, Sepp Mayerl and Rolf Walter of Austria made the first ascent of Lhotse Shar. Lhotse Middle remained, for a long time, the highest unclimbed named point on Earth; on May 23, 2001, its first ascent was made by Eugeny Vinogradsky, Sergei Timofeev, Alexei Bolotov and Petr Kuznetsov of a Russian expedition.

Translated by Hugh Merrick from Albert Eggler's original Gipfel Uber Den Wolken (Bern 1956).
