Detailed Product Description
France, 2005, 1st edition. 282 pp, color photos. In French. New paperback.

The Swiss mountain guide Jean Troillet has specialized in ascents of 8000 meter peaks. To his credit, eight summits conquered on fourteen of our planet, reached in alpine style and without oxygen. 
 
In 1986, he climbed Mount Everest: he held the speed record of the climb in forty-three hours return. In 1997, he was the first man to descend the north face of the roof of the world in snowboarding. 8000: K2, Dhaulagiri, Everest, Cho Oyu, Shisha Pangma, Lhotse, Kangchenjunga, Makalu. Preparation, walking approach, stay at base camp, and stormed back end ...
 
Over the essential steps that mark a shipment, Jean Troillet us relive what were the most beautiful moments, also the most painful of those climbs that brought it to the top of many 8000, or sometimes left - wise and obeying the laws of nature - near the end, without reaching it. But it is also the philosophy that 'art' that is the fact that we mountaineering grasp. In May 2005, at age 57, he attempted the ascent of Nanga Parbat (8125 meters) in Pakistan. Jean Troillet definitely has not said its final word. 'I count up to 80 years,' he used to say!
