Well written but pretty self aggrandizing account of the 1st summit of 8000 m peakOn the one hand it s cool to read about how they did things 60 years ago starting with finding the actual mountain Since no 8000 m peak had ever been climbed this was 3 yrs before HillaryTenzing on Everest nothing was a given including what face to assault and how to actually get there in the first placeLater learned Herzog forced all other members of his party to sign Non Disclosure Agreements legal waivers that prohibited them from writing personal accounts of the climb thus making his account the ONLY one out there Right there I began to have a problem with his story and it appears there are many views on this Google the controversy surrounding this book if you re interested as it appears Herzog s account of his magnificent summit is suspect As for the account of 2 guys making their way updown mighty Annapurna dodging snow storms crevasses avalanches and all the other fun stuff that can happen 8000 m in the Himalaya while outfitted in 1950 s gear it definitely delivers Add to this that smokes and sleeping pills were a routine part of their day and you start to get an idea of how crazy this expedition was Seen by many as the bible of mountaineering it also is a reminder that history is written by the winners and those with legal contracts Apparently his summit partner Louis Lechenal was completely left out of celebrations acclaim and awards to such a degree that when you google Herzog s name there is virtually ZERO mention of himContrast that with the graceful and dignified manner that Hillary dealt with climbing Everest giving as much credit to Tenzing Norgay as himself and even going so far as to refuse to say who actually summited first to ensure neither man would gain credit over the other Speaks volumes in my opinion

A readable telling of the first summiting of an 8000m mountain a few years before Hillary climbed Everest with Tensing It was the days of bare footed porters climbers smoking cigarettes at any given opportunity and Indian Survey maps which only vaguely resemble to actual lie of the land In fact a chapter is devoted to wandering about attempting to locate AnnapurnaThere is some controversy over whether the climb eventuated the way this book is told where Herzog does take a lot of the glory of the expeditionRegardless of how romanticised the story told is and despite the fact I have read uite a lot of mountain climbing books I really don t fundamentally understand the personal drive reuired for climbing To me it is absolute madness to push on regardless of common sense knowing that if you somehow do survive frostbite and the loss of fingers toes or worse will render you less able to climb again in the future let alone anything elseOne thing I found strange about the translation as I suspect that is where it occurred is the constant changing of units of measure Metres feet millimetres inches miles it is just all over the show sometimes within the same sentence or paragraph Obviously a French expedition so the metric system should have been relevant Maybe Herzog himself was too used to conversing with those peoples who were still suffering the imperial system of measure given the year most had not metricated by this time There are even three hold outs today lets hear it for the USA Liberia and Myanmar

This is a bit of a slog until they get to Annapurna and start the summit After that point it becomes a gripping story A large part of me finds it hard to believe such adventures are called a success when the only reason many of the French climbing team is alive is because Sherpas literally carried them down the mountain and then all the way to India while the white men s digits were literally rotting off In fact the two who sumitted would almost certainly have died I don t think their French climbing partners would have been able to rescue them as not enough of them were in decent shape Two of them did provide critical help at Camp IV V but at a certain point it was up to the backs of the Sherpas to carry these men out Aside from the impressiveness of the physical challenge I uestion some of the decisions made high up on the mountain I know they weren t thinking straight and they knew that as well but shouldn t such experienced mountaineers realize that living to climb another day is smarter than endangering so many people to be the first at something That perhaps keeping all your fingers and toes is a much smarter decision That taking an extra pair of gloves in spite of the weight is a good idea We don t reward these kinds of smart decisions in western society the holding back kind I wonder if we should There are also many moments of cultural discomfort with Herzog praising the Sherpas and coolies as he called them and then constantly admonishing them to go slowly and be careful as he is carried on their backs Towards the end of their travels it sounds like they were forcibly enlisting people to help carry things out Many of these people didn t stick around to be paid but fled when they could Herzog seems to think those who stayed were ok with being forced to labor as there were smiles all around The book also leaves me with even admiration for the modern climbers who do the solofast and lightno oxygen thing Mountaineering is always a bit of a group activity but for those who solo it as much as possible thereby limiting the risksdangers to only oneself my hat is off to them
