The 1963 expedition, led by Dyhrenfurth, placed the first Americans on the summit and made the first traverse -- up the West Ridge and down the South Col route. A mountaineering milestone. This hardcover edition followed the Sierra Club large-format edition. This edition has some photos not included in the original that are more oriented towards the climb itself, a new preface by Hornbein and a forward by Doug Scott. Still a classic book! Selected by National Geographic Adventure as one of the 100 Best Adventure Books of All Time.

Neate H112, SB H24, Yak H240.
