Rate this:
The author of this book is the man who cut the rope in Joe Simpson's award-winning account of their struggle for survival in Touching the Void. Afterwards, while Simpson recuperated from multiple leg injuries, Yates continued mountaineering on the hardest routes, perhaps the most testing of which was the world's largest vertical rock-face, towering 4000 feet above the eastern face of Paine in Chile. This is his account of that challenge.
