SIGNED/INSCRIBED/dated by Rob Taylor:"12-12-86  To Paul, Good luck in '87 and in the days beyond The Beach. Rob" 

This book is a special edition (commemorating the return to Kilimanjaro November 1985) numbered by (884 of 1000) and signed again on the half title page by Rob Taylor. 

An attempt on the Breach Wall of Kilimanjaro led to a fall and a broken ankle, then to a rescue and controversy. 
 
This is the account of the author's attempted ascent of the Icicle Route on the Breach Wall of Kilimanjaro. Author was injured in a fall from the icicle. Controversial rescue & conflict ensued. Taylor uses a pseudonym in this book for his partner, Henry Barber. This is a good read despite being somewhat weird in places. The first ascent of this route was completed later by Reinhold Messner.
