The 1975 attempt on Lhotse’s South Face was a combined climbing and scientific expedition. The strong team tackled vertical rock and 70° ice at high altitude but had to abandon the climb 3300’ short of the summit in the face of bad weather and avalanches. About half the book is devoted to the climb, with one chapter by Messner, and half to the scientific work. In Italian, no English edition.
