On 25 Jan 2018, Revol and her climbing partner Tomasz Mackiewicz summited Nanga Parbat, the killer mountain. Situated in the Karakoram, the world’s ninth-highest peak is an immense ice-armoured pyramid of rock rising to an altitude of 8,126 metres. Élisabeth and Tomek had completed only the second winter ascent of the mountain, and Élisabeth had become the first woman to summit Nanga Parbat in winter. But their euphoria was short-lived. As soon as they reached the top, their adventure turned into a nightmare as Tomek was struck by blindness.

In her own words, Élisabeth tells the story of this tragedy and the extraordinary rescue operation that resounded across the globe as fellow climbers flew in from K2 to help the stricken pair. She confronts her memories, her terror, her immense pain, and the heartbreak of having survived, alone. To Live is Revol’s poignant tribute to her friend and climbing partner.

This special, signed edition has a different binding from the unsigned trade edition and contains an additional signature page with the limitation number and Élisabeth’s signature. Shortlisted for the UK’s 2020 Great Outdoors Book of the Year.
