About This Item
"This book gives one of the best and clearest descriptions one has yet read of the difficult "Second Step" on Everest which has baffled many climbers. Its ten chapters have hundreds of interesting points, and the photographs are remarkable for the way in which they show the massive proportions, the tremendous downrush of precipices, and the dizzying effect of corners and slaps that seem to be hung out over space." - Manchester Guardian Mountains include: Snowdon, Ben Nevis, Mount Cook, The Matterhorn, Ushba, Mont Blanc, Mount Logan, Nanga Parbat, Kangchenjunga, Mount Everest.
