Detailed Product Description

New York or London, 1977, 1st edition. 182 pp, color photos, b/w illustrations. Used paperback with damp stain, which has caused cover and book to ripple. Very Good overall condition.

The account of a 1974 climbing camp in the USSR when many climbers died. One American, Gary Ullin died in an avalanche, and eight female Soviet climbers in one team also died. 

This was the first time the Pamirs had been open to foreigners in decades, so the team comprised some of the best American climbers of the day: John Rosekelley, Bob Craig, Gary Ullin, John Marts, Fred Stanley, John Evans, Allen Steck, Frank Sarnquits, Bruce Carson, Molly Higgins, Pete Schoening, Chris Kopczynski, Jeff Lowe, Jed Williamson, Marty Hooey, Peter Lev, etc. 

Bob Craig has made many ascents in Colorado and the Tetons. He was director of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies for more than a decade and later became president of the Keystone Center for Continuing Education. He wrote the excellent mountaineering book Storm & Sorrow In The High Pamirs which is his firsthand account of the disastrous joint USSR-USA climbing expedition in the Soviet Pamirs in 1974.
