Synopsis: This book conveys the infectious mixture of enthusiasm, joy and awe which mountains inspire in the author. It follows the climbing career of a crystal-hunting Austrian teenager who went on to discover his native Alps, climbing in a succession of seasons the Brenva Face of Mont Blanc, the North Face of the Dent d'Herens, the Obergabelhorn direct, the North Face of the Matterhorn, the Konigswand, the Peuterey Ridge and the North Face of the Eiger. While further afield his small-scale Alpine-style expeditions took him to Broad Peak with Hermann Buhl and on a tragic denouement on Chogolisa to Tirich Mir in the Hindu Kush and the iceberg-choked fiords of Greenland.

Dust jacket not price clipped and has tear to top front left corner, edgewear to top front; just over half inch tear to back and less than quarter inch to same; slight wear to top and bottom of spine and very slight to corners. Translated by Hugh Merrick. Here the legendary mountaineer Kurt Diemberger binds together tales of his extraordinary achievements which were carried out in his own original style - with eirther one friend or a few, occasionally alone but never with a large, organized expedition. Not just climbing is included but also his intellectual and emotional adventures which are just as stirring as his conquest of ice, snow and rock. POSTAGE OVERSEAS is charged at cost and where extra is needed this will be requested. Broadleaf Books is a secondhand bookshop in Abergavenny, South Wales. Enquiries and visits are very welcome.
