Detailed Product Description
New York, 1980 revised US edition (paperback was first). 223 pp, 16 b/w and color photos. Remainder mark, Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

Account of a 1974 American and International Climbing Camp in the USSR when many climbers died. 
 
This was the first time the Pamirs had been open to foreigners in decades, so the team comprised some of the best American climbers of the day: John Roskelley, Bob Craig, Gary Ullin, John Marts, Fred Stanley, John Evans, Allen Steck, Frank Sarnquist, Bruce Carson, Molly Higgins, Pete Schoening, Chris Kopczynski, Jeff Lowe, Jed Williamson, Marty Hooey, Peter Lev, etc.

One American, Gary Ullin died in an avalanche, and eight female Soviet climbers in one team also died.  
 
Bob Craig made many ascents in Colorado and the Tetons. He was director of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies for more than a decade and later became president of the Keystone Center for Continuing Education.
