Detailed Product Description
Zurich, 1974, 1st edition. 176 pp, 39 photos, 8 maps, mapped end papers. In German. Pale blue cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket is slightly wrinkled and discolored on the back, else Fine.

This is the story of the infamous 1971 International Everest Expedition, led by Norman Dyhrenfurth, who had successfully led the first American ascent of Everest 8 years earlier. The goal was to attempt two routes, SW Face and West Ridge, but the SW Face was abandoned and an attempt on the South Col was made instead.
 
The expedition was an all-star team, with Haston, Whillans, Uemura, Colliver, Hiebeler, Vaucher, Mazeaud, Mauri, P Steele, etc. There was also a BBC TV crew. Whillans and Haston reached the expedition high point of 8350m.
 
This expedition was torn by dissent among all the prima donna climbers, with Pierre Mazeaud exclaiming at one point, "You expect me, a member of the French assembly, to act as a Sherpa for Germans and British? It is not me you have insulted. It is all of France!"
