Detailed Product Description
Stuttgart, 2005, 1st edition. 144 pp, many color photos by Heinz Zak. In German. No English edition. Large Format Pictorial Hardcover - no dust jacket issued. Fine condition

A full coverage of all the big wall and mountaineering exploits of the Huber brothers. 
 
Translated by computer from the Huber website:
Thomas and Alexander Huber, the Huber Brothers, are among the MOST successful climbers of our time. Expeditions, free climbing on Big walls, the eleventh grade, free solo climbing and speed - the two are not specialists, but special all-rounders. The book shows the most spectacular actions, from its beginnings to the speed climbing record, richly illustrated with pictures by the legendary Heinz Zak.
