Hermann Buhl

Climbing without Compromise


Reinhold Messner and Horst Hofler have combined to produce this new study of the life and mountaineering adventures of the legendary Austrian climber, Hermann Buhl. "At last, a definitive work on Hemann Buhl! Tim Carruthers has produced a superb translation of Reinhold Messner's and Horst Hofler's much needed biography of one of my all time mountaineering heroes.

This book in no way competes with 'Nanga Parbat Pilgrimage', which remains a great classic of mountaineering literature, but rather it stands alongside the original - presenting a more honest and prosaic account of Buhl as a man and a climber. He is revealed as very much the hard-core climber in the modern idiom, a driven man for whom the mountains and his climbing came before all else. The myth lives on. Now we can understand it better with this complete and more balanced picture of one of the greatest climbers of his generation. - Joe Simpson
