High Risk Climbing to Extinction

Reading Brian Hall’s book High Risk Climbing to Extinction. It’s quite moving for me as I knew and climbed with several of the characters involved and went to too many memorial services during that period. However, it’s a great book, very well written and evocative of that period of British albinism when the boundaries were being pushed. Often too far.


Probably too many white people…oh wait, you meant alpinism

It does look like a good read, wasn’t Brian Hall involved with the stuntwork for The Eiger Sanction?
