Big Walls - From the North Face of the Eiger to the South Face of Dhaulagiri
The Big Walls are the royal discipline in mountaineering terms. They embody all the things that make climbing what it is – size, scale, difficulty, exposure, remoteness, and the reduction of equipment to a minimum. Challenging walls can be found the world over: in the Himalayas, the Karakorum and the Alps for example.
Here, world-famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner presents detailed information on fifty walls, showing a new generation of climbers where the big challenges and remaining climbing problems may be encountered.
Lavishly illustrated throughout with stunning photographs, this book is inspirational, informative and is essential reading for climbers, mountaineers and all those interested in adventure travel.
