Detailed Product Description
New York, Harper & Row, 1988, 1st edition. 172 pp, b/w and color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine to Fine condition.

Winner of the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountaineering Literature.

This superbly written book contains drama and tension often lacking in expedition reports of this type. Destined to become a classic of Andean literature. Simpson, a skillful climber, and partner Simon Yates achieved a new route on the west face of 21,000' Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. On the descent, disaster struck and Simon was forced to cut the rope, leaving Joe to die in a crevasse. Incredibly, he managed to extricate himself and survive the ordeal. A remarkable story of friendship and survival. Foreword by Chris Bonington.
