This is a terrific update to Sale and John Cleare’s earlier work ‘On Top of the World/Climbing the World’s 14 Highest Mountains’ published in 2000. Each of the 14 8000m peaks has a chapter with a brief historical overview followed by focus on events of the last ten years. The photo selection is superb with many unique images, including the first summit photos taken on Gasherbrum II and Kangchenjunga. Tables, based on Jurgalski’s data, present first ascent information on new routes.
