EVEREST KANGSHUNG FACE
Written by Stephen Venables.
Stock no. 1810948
Published by Hodder & Stoughton. 1st 1989. Nearly fine condition in a very good dustwrapper.

Stephen Venables shares all the emotions of expedition climbing at first-hand; the frustration of a slow bad-weather approach, the exhilaration of discovering marvellous rock climbing on the lower buttress, the delight in tier after tier of bizarre snow flutings and ice towers, the satisfaction of solving a crucial crevasse problem with the world's highest Tyrolean traverse, the solitary single-minded fight for every historic step above the South Col, coupled with the suppressed excitement of knowing the summit is within reach, and the desperate descent, calling in equal measure on ultimate reserves of stamina and willpower, along the very boundary of survival. Blue boards, gilt title to spine. Colour & b/w photos. ISBN: 0340423668. Dustwrapper is lightly browned and slightly grubby.
