Good adventure story. Not so much about climbing, but about famous climbers, which gives much insight into their lives.

User Review  - A - Goodreads

While a compelling story, the author's writing was substandard. He switched tenses and made other annoying errors. He should stick to writing magazine articles. Read full review
