Detailed Product Description

Seattle, 1993, 1st edition. 223 pp, color & b/w photos. Hardcover without DJ, VG-Fine.

John Roskelley recounts adventures on Dhaulagiri, Everest, Makalu and the Pamirs. John Roskelley has succeeded on scores of technically difficult ascents, climbed three 8,000-meter peaks, and been on more successful expeditions than almost any other American mountaineer. In a blunt, outspoken style, Stories Off the Wall focuses on the characters, places, and incidents that have shaped him as a man and a climber. Readers will witness the professionalism and skill that make Roskelley one of the most respected mountaineers in the world.

He has lost toes to frostbite, suffered pulmonary edema, survived avalanches and icy bivouacs. Roskelley, one of America's premier mountaineers, recounts his experiences on the high peaks and his transition from teenage exploits to middle-age prudence. He offers stirring tales of adventure: a dramatic rescue on Denali (Mt. McKinley), an impulse climb on the North Face of the Eiger, tackling a frozen waterfall in Canada's Banff National park. 

Roskelley claims three 8000-meter peaks; he was the first American to reach the summit of 27,000-foot Makalu in Nepal. He attended the ill-fated 1974 International Climbers Camp in the Russian Pamirs, an expedition beset by an earthquake and avalanches, during which one of his companions and nine women climbers died. To select a climbing partner, Roskelley uses the 'shoelace test'--if the person's shoelaces don't stay tied, he won't tie onto a rope with him or her. His adventures provide peak reading.
