Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
UK, 2022, 1st edition. 380 pages, 50 color photos. Hardcover with Dust Jacket. Fine

The golden age of Himalayan mountaineering, from the mid 1970s to the 1980s, brought forth a generation of radical young climbers. With tiny budgets and high ambitions they pioneered small scale, Alpine-style expeditions on mountains such as Jannu, Nuptse, Everest, and K2. In High Risk, Brian Hall recalls the outrageous adventures of eleven of his climbing friends who risked, and too often lost, their lives to stand on some of the world’s highest peaks at a turning point in mountaineering history.

The climbers profiled include:

Sam Cochrane
John Syrette
Alex MacIntyre
Mike Geddes
John Whittle
Roger Baxter-Jones
Georges Bettembourg
Pete Thexton
Joe Tasker
Paul Nunn
Alan Rouse
