One of Rébuffat’s earliest books, this classic describes his ascents of the six great north faces of the Alps (Grandes Jorasses, Piz Badile, the Drus, Matterhorn, Cima Grande di Lavaredo, and Eiger). This copy is also signed by Tom Ballard, son of noted mountaineer Alison Hargreaves. In 1993 Hargreaves became the first person to climb the six faces all in one summer. Following Alison’s tragic death on K2 in 1995, Tom took to climbing and became the first to climb the north faces in a single winter without support (2014-15). He died on Nanga Parbat in 2019. First published in 1954, this is the original French edition of ‘Starlight and Storm’.
