As serious armchair climbers will tell you, Annapurna South Face is better than all but a handful of equally gripping classics. One could also argue that all that has happened in the big mountains in the past 30 years has come out of this expedition and out of this book.

They pioneered a new, bolder approach to high altitude climbing, and this book is about how they hit the big time. Like this book?
