Detailed Product Description

1996. 270 pp, b/w photos, illustrations. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. 

Here are three incredible survival stories: Scott Fischer and Ed Viesturs on K2, Colby Coombs on Foraker, and Potterfield's personal broken bone cliffhanger in the Cascades.  True-life accounts of three climbers who faced the ultimate challenge in passionate pursuit of their sport. Author Peter Potterfield on Chimney Rock in the North Cascades. To climb is to risk, and nowhere is that more evident than in these true-life accounts of three men who faced the ultimate challenge in passionate pursuit of their sport.

A veteran journalist with 25 years of climbing experience, author Pottersfield is a master craftsman who has himself been 'in the zone.' These stories, the result of extensive interviews, reveal that the keys to averting tragedy lie in the head and heart as much as in technical proficiency and physical strength. There is the story of Colby Coombs' disastrous experience on Alaska's Mount Foraker, which ranks with Joe Simpson's Touching the Void as one of the greatest survival stories of the genre.

On K2, experienced climber Scott Fischer (who lost his life in the 1996 Everest tragedy) and partner Ed Viesturs battle for the summit in the face of numerous setbacks, severe injuries, and harrowing weather conditions. Peter Potterfield recounts his own riveting tale of hope and desperation after a climbing fall that left him trapped and badly injured on a narrow ledge in Washington's North Cascades.
