Detailed Product Description
London, 1989, 1st edition. 301 pp, color photos, index. Blue cloth hardcover with dust jacket. As New. 

An attempt on an unclimbed 7000m peak in the Karakoram, just northwest of K2. The author Major Hugh McManners' account of joining an Army expedition to climb the world's third highest unclimbed peak. In 1982 he returned from active duty in the Falklands, subsequently suffering from depression and decided to join the ten man team led by Captain Henry Morgan to climb the 7,500 meter crown in August 1987.

He was appointed ''official'' cameraman and joined the group in Hong Kong, getting to know his colleagues on the long journey through China, struggling with bureaucracy and a long trek by foot and camel. They failed to reach the summit by a whisker, but he learned a great deal about himself.
