Detailed Product Description


SIGNED by Hermann Buhl

Munchen, 1955, 2nd printing. 351 pp, 20 photos. In German. Hermann Buhl was one of the greatest Alpine and Himalayan climbers of all time, and is most famous for making the first ascent of Nanga Parbat solo and without oxygen. This is one of the classics of the literature. He died while descending from Chogolisa with Diemberger.  Hardcover with the classic photo of Buhl on the DJ, DJ and book are Fine condition.  

Hermann Buhl (September 21, 1924 - June 27, 1957) is considered one of the best post-war Austrian climbers and one of the best climbers of all time. His accomplishments include: 1953 First ascent of Nanga Parbat, 8,125 metres (26,658 ft.) 1957 First ascent of Broad Peak, 8,047 metres (26,400 ft.) Before his successful Nanga Parbat expedition, 31 people had already died trying to make the first ascent. Buhl is the only mountaineer to have made the first ascent of an Eight-thousander solo. Just a few weeks after their success on Broad Peak, Buhl and Kurt Diemberger attempted nearby Chogolisa peak (7,654 metres). Buhl died when he fell through a cornice on the SE ridge near the summit of Chogolisa. His body has never been found.
