    Hermann Buhl was a mountaineering legend, the first on Nanga Parbat in a dramatic solo ascent from the upper camp and Broad Peak as part of a summit team of 4 , and then died on his 3rd 8000 meter peak, Chogolisa Two authors researched this bio, the most recognizable of the two is clearly Reinhold Messner a living legend himself.For those partial to mountaineering lit, this is one for the personal library When climbers today become familiar with the stories of those climbing giants of an Hermann Buhl was a mountaineering legend, the first on Nanga Parbat in a dramatic solo ascent from the upper camp and Broad Peak as part of a summit team of 4 , and then died on his 3rd 8000 meter peak, Chogolisa Two authors researched this bio, the most recognizable of the two is clearly Reinhold Messner a living legend himself.For those partial to mountaineering lit, this is one for the personal library When climbers today become familiar with the stories of those climbing giants of another era, we are motivated and inspired to get back into the mountains This book accomplishes that.One noticeable weakness is the general writing style The appendix describes the authors desire to let Hermann Buhl tell his own story in his own words as much as possible Though I haven t read it yet, Buhl s first ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1953 was documented in a book called Nanga Parbat Pilgrimage written ostensibly by Buhlbut Buhl s manuscript was then edited liberally and at times completely re written by Kurt Maix, in the clearly romanticized style of the day Messner, while acknowledging Maix s book as a classic in its time, also yearns to recapture and honor Buhl s actual thoughts perspectives And he achieves that, for better or for worse.But you only discover this when you hit the appendixI wish it was a prologue, so you know this info going in Without this knowledge, I would have given the book a lower rating since in the early portion, it is at times tedious or even stylistically uninteresting Part of this is the author s style, other times it is merely an honest reflection of Buhl s diary excerpts in the early parts of the book Not to mention, the authors first language is not English, which made for the occasional lack of connection with this American reader But these faults , when contextualized, pose no problem In fact, only a myopic reader with an entertain me worldview would dismiss this book on such merit.The content gets immediately interesting with the chapter Alone on the North East Face of the Badille , and continues to the end Buhl s solo of the Piz Badille is followed by his Himalayan expeditions Nanga Parbat, Broad Peak, and finally Chogolisa Made me want to head to the Himalaya Hermann Buhl was arguably the greatest mountain climber of his era, leading the way in hard ascents of rock, ice, in the Alps and the Himalayas If you are a climber, pick this one up

    A biography of Hermann Buhl, probably the greatest climber of the 1940 s, by the great climber Reinhold Messner and Horst Hofler Apparently Herman Buhl was Messner s hero, in his youth.Messner makes a case that the earlier book on Buhl Nanga Parbat Pilgrimage was over edited by Kurt Maix This book concentrates on text as written by Buhl himself.It is incredible to read of the terrain that Buhl climbed without any aids that are common today In fact, much terrain was climbed free In a fe A biography of Hermann Buhl, probably the greatest climber of the 1940 s, by the great climber Reinhold Messner and Horst Hofler Apparently Herman Buhl was Messner s hero, in his youth.Messner makes a case that the earlier book on Buhl Nanga Parbat Pilgrimage was over edited by Kurt Maix This book concentrates on text as written by Buhl himself.It is incredible to read of the terrain that Buhl climbed without any aids that are common today In fact, much terrain was climbed free In a few places, Buhl refers to how great rubber climbing shoes are Presumably he is referring to the use of Vibram soles rather than the earlier nailed boots.Being poor in his early years, he often bicycled to his climbs The NE Face of the Badile required a 140 km cycle just to get to it and back His crowning achievement was the first ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1953, which involved a bivouac at 8000 m., just 150 m below the summit Later he climbed Broad Peak, becoming the first non Nepalese to climb two 8000 m peaks

    It s curious that certain mountains in the Himalayas or Karakoram regions have had held specific fascination or obsession for one european culture or another the brits and everest have been closely connected.K2 was first climbed by italians and many of it s features are named after italians, of course i know there are local names too, but anyway..for the germans it was nanga parbat in the 1930 s it really was a dramatic undertaking..messner is a fairly reasonable writer with an attitu It s curious that certain mountains in the Himalayas or Karakoram regions have had held specific fascination or obsession for one european culture or another the brits and everest have been closely connected.K2 was first climbed by italians and many of it s features are named after italians, of course i know there are local names too, but anyway..for the germans it was nanga parbat in the 1930 s it really was a dramatic undertaking..messner is a fairly reasonable writer with an attitude that appeals to me, and buhl was quite the man

    Il libro attualmente fuori catalogo, ho rotto le cosiddette all editore per averlo mi hanno trovato una copia di archivio ha un p di fascino extra e ne davvero valsa la pena E stato come vivere con Hermann Buhl ogni istante delle sue scalate, la sua narrazione sempre pulita, precisa, netta Mirabile l interevento di Messner nel mettere insieme e ricostuire i pezzi mancanti.
