A beautiful, large-format, book on the history of Nanga Parbat. Using archival material, historical photos, and spectacular aerial photos, Messner tells the history of climbing on this great peak from 1895 to 2005. Here are the stories of attempts and ascents from Mummery (1895), the pre-war German attempts (1932, ’34. ’37, ’38), Hermann Buhl’s first ascent (1953), the Messner brothers on the Rupal Face (1970), Reinhold’s solo ascent (1978), to Steve House and Vince Anderson on the Rupal Face (2005). This book weighs 4.5 pounds. In German, no English translation.
