Pauner, a highly successful Spanish mountaineer, has climbed 13 of the 14 8000m peaks without supplemental oxygen. His first was K2 (2001) and in May, 2012 he reached the summit of Shishapangma, his 13th peak. The only remaining 8000er for Pauner is Everest. He first attempted Kangchenjunga in 1997 as a member of the Spanish expedition led by Inaki Ochoa. Their attempt was abandoned at 8250m due to high winds and frostbite. Pauner returned to Kangchenjunga in 2003 as a member of a small Italian expedition led by Christian Kuntner. All four members reached the summit although Pauner, who was last, became separated from the group on descent. He was feared lost for two days as he descended the mountain by a new route. This book covers both of his Kangchenjunga expeditions. In Spanish, no English translation.
