In the summer of 2012, a team of six climbers set out to attempt the first ascent of one of the great unclimbed lines of the Himalaya – the giant Mazeno Ridge on Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth highest mountain. At ten kilometres in length, the Mazeno is the longest route to the summit of an 8,000-metre peak. Ten expeditions had tried and failed to climb this enormous ridge.

Eleven days later two of the team, Sandy Allan and Rick Allen, both in their late fifties, reached the summit. They had run out of food and water and began hallucinating wildly from the effects of altitude and exhaustion. Heavy snow conditions meant they would need another three days to descend the far side of the ‘killer mountain’.

This is Sandy Allan’s epic account of an incredible feat of endurance and commitment at the very limits of survival – and the first ascent of one of the last challenges in the Himalaya. For this amazing feat, Allan and Allen received the 2013 Piolet d’Or award.

This limited edition of 100, is numbered, signed, and has a different green cloth binding from the trade edition. Shortlisted for the 2015 Boardman/Tasker Mountaineering Literature Award and winner of the ITAS Non-fiction prize at the 2018 Trento Film Festival.
