Detailed Product Description
Paris, Albin Michel, 1977. 296 pp. In French. Used softcover. Near Fine.

Two men in front of the north face of the Eiger, a dark, hostile, disproportionate wall: two kilometers high by four wide. The Eigerwand, as the Germans say, is not only the largest wall in the Alps, but the most formidable, the most deadly (its dramatic conquest dominated the entire history of mountaineering between the two world wars). Renaud and Vincent engage in the face. Eighteen hundred meters of climbing, of which every centimeter can kill. Dozens of hours of exhausting, incessant tension, of which every second can kill. 

Eiger completely renews the very particular genre of the race to the top story, and gives it another dimension. For Georges Sonnier, who has devoted considerable attention to the mountains and mountaineering, both coherent and diverse, never forgets that the mountaineer, in the fight he leads against the mountain, puts his future at stake.
