Nanga Parbat 1970
Available in Stock
In 1970 a German-Austrian-Italian climbing team reached the 8042-metre summit of Nanga Parbat, one of the highest peaks of the Himalayas. But triumph soon turned to controversy when two members of the team, Reinhold Messner and his brother Günther, decided to descend via the opposite face – a climb that claimed Günther’s life. This investigation draws on diaries, interviews, private conversations and books by team members to shed light on the brothers’ decision and reveal the story behind the story.
