The ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1970 marked the beginning of Reinhold Messner’s remarkable career in Himalayan climbing. But this expedition has always been shrouded in controversy and mystery; his brother GŸnther, who accompanied him, met his death on the mountain.

In The Naked Mountain Messner gives his side of the story in full for the first time. This most personal account is a story of death and survival …. and for those who want to understand what is the force that drives Messner on, this book is the key.

‘Nothing if not passionate, Messner writes of the Himalyan experience with a nearly mystical fervour. His description of catastrophe at high altitude is page-turning.’ Rock & Ice‘A gripping piece of writing …. The translation reads like a good thriller, drawing the reader back through historical epics; treading the footsteps of climbers right on the edge of things…’ Scottish Mountaineer
