London, 1959, 1st UK edition. 212 pp, 23 b/w plates, 3 maps, index. Blue cloth hardcover with gilt titles on spine and dust jacket. Jacket is chipped, book is fine. Near Fine.

With a foreword by Sir John Hunt. Story of the tragic Oxford University Expedition to Haramosh in the Karakoram in 1957.  

The 1957 expedition to Haramosh Peak in the Karakoram range in Pakistan is a tale in the same genre as Touching the Void of an expedition that has gone terribly wrong.

Two climbers in the party are avalanched into a snow basin at 20,000 feet; two other climbers try to rescue them but get stuck themselves in the process. The Last Blue Mountain tells of three days and three nights without food or water as the climbers try to extricate one another from an icy grave. As told by Ralph Barker, it is an epic of human endeavor and fortitude.
