I read this account of the south face of Annapurna in the early '70's. I still recall the tale of difficulty, survival and how tough the British climbers were. I have met some of them in person and they are beyond mere mortals in what they accomplished. Annapurna has a rate of death of 50 percent. Each time one climber has reached the summit, one climber has been lost. The British expedition to the south face climbed what has to be the most difficult route on the mountain. Legendary climbers in a dangerous world of high Himalayan peaks, it does not get any better than this. I highly recommend this book to any climber, or anyone that enjoys true tales of human endurance and perserverance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
