Detailed Product Description

London, Jonathan Cape, 1988, 1st UK ed. 172 pp, 21 b/w and color photos, map, end paper sketch maps. Original black cloth Hardcover with gilt lettering on spine and dust jacket. Jacket may have surface ripples. Near Fine to Fine condition.

Winner of the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountaineering Literature.

We believe there are only about 2000 copies of the 1st UK edition. 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 remarkably written story of friendship and survival. Foreword by Chris Bonington.
