Book Description
Hermann Buhl`s momentous ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1953 (after Everest and Annapurana, the third 8000m peak to be climbed) set an agenda for advanturous mountaineers for the rest of the century. The pre-war and post war mood was for"conquering" the major peaks with large, nationalistically-charged expenditions, with his long and committing solo summit push and painfully slow descent, reminded everyone that mountains could never be conquered -under favourable conditions they might be climbed, but the human spirit was invariably the critical factor.
