Detailed Product Description

London or New York, 1978, 1st edition. 144 pp, color photos. Larger hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be chipped and faded. Book may have former owner's name on FEP or minor chip in dust jacket. Near Fine to Fine. 

Messner's climbs of Mont Agner North Face, the Matterhorn North Face, Grandes Jorasses Walker Spur, Eiger North Face, Aconcagua South Face, Nanga Parbat South Face and Dhaulagiri South Face.

Reinhold Messner was the first man to climb all of the world's mountains exceeding a height of 8000 meters (26,250 feet), and he was also the first to cross Antarctica without either dogs or machines.
 
'The Big Wall crystallizes Messner's philosophy and experiences. To this riveting account of the ascent of seven of the world's most challenging faces, Messner brings his personal credo as well as the vast technical expertise he has accumulated the hard way... with its stunning photographs, maps, and diagrams, this book is a mine of advice and information about all aspects of mountaineering.' Peter Habeler, featured prominently in this volume, has been with Messner on many of his most famous climbs, including their joint ascent of Everest in 1978, the first without use of bottled oxygen.
