Detailed Product Description
 Massachusetts, Coward McCann, 1981, first edition. 254 pp, color photos. Hardcover with Dust Jacket, Fine.

SIGNED, INSCRIBED & DATED by Rob Taylor on the half title page:

"For Mike [Chessler], and the good times to come beyond THE BREACH Rob 11.6.82"

This book is also SIGNED on 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. The author was injured in a fall from the icicle. A 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.
