I've read this book and it is a great bok. Rather than writing a review about how great this is and laying out what he talks about in the book, I'll leave it at this:
If you're a climber of any sorts, you should pick this book up and give it a read. But then you'll want to read all his books and the books from the other guys he climbed with.
Vivid look into a world class Alpinist
This book is fantastic. Steve House brings you into a realistic and sometimes frightening world of an alpinist. He is authentic and entertaining. He is cocky and has the resume to back it up. I am a city boy yearning for the mountains. I bought this book to read on the subway and teleport me to the Tetons, Himalayas, and Rockies. I have missed my stop more than once.
