Detailed Product Description
Munich, 2004, 1st edition. 380 pp, 41 color and 88 b/w photos. In German. New Hardcover with Dust Jacket.

SIGNED on the title page by Kurt Diemberger.
 
Diemberger is the only living mountaineer who has climbed two eight-thousanders first and without artificial oxygen. In 1957, he made the first ascent of Broad Peak and in 1960, the first ascent of Dhaulagiri. Diemberger was also the last person to see Hermann Buhl alive before he fell through a cornice on Chogolisa. Diemberger was one of only two survivors in the 1986 K2 Disaster.

On August 4, 1986, Diemberger and Julie Tullis reached the summit of K2 very late in the day. Shortly after starting their descent, Julie fell -- dragging Diemberger with her. Fortunately, they somehow stopped from going over the edge and spent the night above 8,000 metres. They managed to reach Camp IV the next day, where they were forced to share a tent with six other climbers after their tent had collapsed from hurricane force winds. Unfortunately, Julie died later that night, possibly from HACE, and only one other of climbers survived the descent with Diemberger. 

Since 1956, Kurt Diemberger has been traveling the extreme - whether on the highest peaks or in the jungles of South America. Not only the beauty and wildness of nature, but also the people there attracted him magically. In his book Diemberger solves the mystery of the death of the great Hermann Buhl at the Chogolisa and tells how Julie Tullis and he fought on the K2 for survival. A long life full of adventure, tragedies and highlights - rousing and wonderfully told. Diemberger is still active in the mountaineering world and works on film projects with his daughter.
