Buhl is considered to be one of the top climbers of all time. He was the first to make the first ascents of two 8000m peaks, Broad Peak and Nanga Parbat. His solo ascent of Nanga Parbat, from the final camp, ranks as one of the outstanding feats in climbing history. His autobiography, published prior to his death in 1957 on Chogolisa, covers his early climbs culminating with Nanga Parbat. This new edition, published after his death, includes an additional chapter on the Chogolisa climb by Kurt Diemberger and has a few more photos than prior editions. This is the German edition of 'Nanga Parbat Pilgrimage'. Buhl’s signature is very scarce and this copy includes a wonderful signed portrait loosely inserted. Neate B210, Yak B291.
