Tadeusz Piotrowski (1939-1986) was one of the great Polish mountaineers specializing in winter ascents. These included Trollryggen (Norway, 1972, 1974, 1977), Noshaq (Afghanistan, 1973), Tirich Mir (Afghanistan, 1978), Rakaposhi (Pakistan, 1979), Distaghil Sar (Pakistan, 1980), and Api (Nepal, 1983). Jerzy Kukuczka stated that Piotrowski ‘was at the turn of the sixties and seventies the most outstanding Polish mountain climber, a specialist in winter climbs’.

In 1982 Piotrowski was a member of Karl Herrligkoffer’s expedition which made the first ascent of the East Pillar of Nanga Parbat. He was a member of the summit team which ultimately placed one member on the summit in a bold solo bid. I believe this is the only book devoted to this expedition. This is one of three books which Danuta Piotrowska has published in honor of her late husband. In Polish, no English translation.
