Thirty years after Nairz’s leadership of the first Austrian ascent of Everest, which culminated with Habeler and Messner’s ascent without artificial oxygen, he’s written a beautiful book covering his expeditions to Manaslu (1972), Makalu (1974), Noshaq (1976), Everest (1978), Ama Dablam (1979, 1985), and Cho Oyu (1982). He has had over 60 trips to Nepal, including Glacier Dome (1983), Dhaulagiri (1984), and Malalu (1986), as well as the Andes and Hindu Kush. Also included are interviews with Ed Hillary and Elizabeth Hawley. The enclosed double-sided DVD contains a 51-minute audio track on one side and a video, ‘The Wild Seventies’, on the other. The video features footage from Makalu, Mount Kenya, Everest and Noshaq, has English subtitles, and is most interesting with interviews from Nairz, Messner, Oswald Oelz, and others. In German, no English translation.
