Publisher's Synopsis

'Dazzling adventures recalled with wisdom and affection.' -Stephen Venables The golden age of Himalayan mountaineering, from the mid 1970s to the '80s, brought forth a generation of radical young climbers. With tiny budgets and high ambitions they pioneered light and fast Alpine style expeditions on mountains such as Jannu, Nuptse, Everest, and K2. In High Risk, Brian Hall recalls the outrageous adventures of eleven of his climbing friends who risked, and too often lost, their lives to stand on some of the world's highest peaks at a turning point in mountaineering history.
