Detailed Product Description

1995, 1st edition 168 pp, photos. Describes two solo attempts to climb Denali (Mount McKinley), North America's highest mountain. At 6194 meters (20,320 feet) above sea level, Denali presents tremendous obstacles to climbers, as well as sublime beauty. 

 Galen Rowell
'Ed Darack's solo climb is a metaphor for the values that adventure and mountain exploration should always preserve.'

The Climbing Art
'...reminiscent of Joe Simpson's Touching the Void...no-nonsense prose and gorgeous photography convey a memorable sense of journey.'

The American Alpine Journal
'...this book offers the hope that the future of climbing can be as glorious as its past...'
