About this book
Salter's mountaineering novel, in a new edition, with an introduction by Andy Cave.
Rand's passion is climbing - mountains, the huge vertical faces. There, where storms, snow, or rockfall can kill, he finds his happiness, sometimes climbing with others, sometimes alone. Not intending it, he becomes suddenly famous for a daring rescue in the Alps. This novel reveals what happens when passion is spent and what becomes of heroes?
