La epopeya protagonizada por el montañero Iñaki Ochoa de Olza y quienes expusieron su vida en un intento frustrado de salvar su vida se ha convertido en un ejemplo de los valores que caracterizan al verdadero deporte: capacidad de sacrificio, solidaridad, compañerismo, voluntad de triunfo...A finales de febrero de 2010, Josep Guardiola aleccionó a los futbolistas del Barcelona en las horas precias al partido contra el Málaga en el Camp Nou con la visión de un video sobre esta extraordinaria historia, emitido días antes en el programa “Informe Robinson”, de Canal +. Saga Editorial publica ahora Bajo los cielos de Asia, un libro de corte autobiográfico que desvela cómo entendía la montaña y la vida Iñaki Ochoa de Olza (Pamplona, 1967-2008). En sus páginas, Iñaki describe de manera lúcida y desnuda el fascinante reto que representa la alta montaña con gran conocimiento de causa. Fue el primer himalayista español en subir un ochomil en menos de 24 horas y atesoraba doce cimas de esa altura antes de que un derrame cerebral le inmovilizara a 7.400 metros en el Annapurna en mayo de 2008. Durante cinco días, algunos de los mejores montañeros del mundo realizaron épicos esfuerzos para llegar hasta dónde se encontraba, pero el rescate fue imposible. Bajo los cielos de Asia cuenta en primera persona las aventuras montañeras de Iñaki Ochoa de Olza y recoge las reflexiones atesoradas en los triunfos y los fracasos de su apasionada existencia. Iñaki Ochoa de Olza Pamplona, 1967 - Annapurna, 2008 Fue un destacado montañero español que protagonizó más de 200 expediciones al Himalaya, en las que llegó a escalar 15 ochomiles. Antes de fallecer a consecuencia del derrame cerebral que le inmovilizó a 7.400 metros en el Annapurna, escribió “Bajo los cielos de Asia”, una obra que refleja su extraordinaria personalidad y aporta las claves para entender por qué algunos de los mejores montañeros del mundo realizaron durante cinco días épicos esfuerzos para intentar rescatarle.

Everest, Shisha Pangma, Annapurna, Cho Oyu, Broad Peak, K2, Manaslu, Lhotse, Makalu, Dhaulagiri: nomi che echeggiano nell’immaginario collettivo come luoghi remoti, quasi inaccessibili. Sono gli Ottomila, le montagne più alte del Pianeta. Marco Confortola ne ha già scalati dieci, e ognuno è stato una storia di fatica e soddisfazioni, rinunce e attimi di pace assoluta, sudore e amicizie ad alta quota con uomini straordinari, da Silvio ‘Gnaro’ Mondinelli a Denis Urubko a Krzysztof Wielicki e molti altri. Pronto a rialzarsi anche dopo la tragedia che l’ha visto coinvolto sul K2, nella quale sono morte 11 persone e ha perso tutte le dita dei piedi per gli effetti del congelamento, Marco non ha smesso di ‘cacciare’, ed è deciso a conquistare la quattro cime che gli mancano per completare la ‘collezione degli Ottomila’ e assecondare così quell’istinto che sin da bambino lo portava a salire sempre più in alto. Il testo ha la prefazione di Carlos Soria Fontán (classe 1939), l’alpinista che detiene il record di 13 Ottomila scalati sopra i 60 anni di età.

From internationally renowned mountain historian Bernadette McDonald comes a highly readable, intense and exciting look at the explosion of Slovenian alpinism in the context of that country’s turbulent political history. After the Second World War a period of relative calm began in Josip Broz Tito’s Yugoslavia. During the next thirty years citizens could travel freely if they had the money. Most did not, but alpinists did. Through elaborate training régimes and state-supported expeditions abroad, Yugoslavian alpinists began making impressive climbs in the Himalaya as early as 1960. By the ’70s, they were ascending the 8000ers. These teams were dominated by Slovenian climbers, since their region includes the Julian Alps, a fiercely steep range of limestone peaks that provided the ideal training ground. After Tito died in 1980, however, the calm ended. Inter-ethnic conflict and economic decline ripped Yugoslavia apart. But Serbian strongman Slobodan Miloševic misread the courage and character of several Yugoslavian states, including Slovenia, and by 1991 Slovenia was independent. The new country continued its support for climbers, and success bred success. By 1995, all of the 8000ers had been climbed by Slovenian teams. And in the next ten years, some of the most dramatic and futuristic climbs were made by these ferocious alpinists. Apart from a few superstars, most of these amazing athletes remain unknown in the West.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY BILL BRYSON An outrageously funny spoof about the ascent of a 40,000-and-a-half-foot peak, The Ascent of Rum Doodle has been a cult favourite since its publication in 1956. Led by the reliably under-insightful Binder, a team of seven British men including Dr Prone (constantly ill); Jungle the route finder (constantly lost), Constant the diplomat (constantly arguing) and 3,000 Yogistani porters, set out to conquer the highest peak in the Himalayas.

* Chronicles all three of Mallory's Everest expeditions * Illuminates how Mallory reconciled his ambitions on Everest with his unquestioned love for his wife and family Since the discovery in 1999 of George Mallory's body on Everest, controversy has raged over whether Mallory and Andrew Irvine could have summitted the mountain. Every detail of the climb has been dissected and Mallory's skill as a mountaineer has been hotly debated. Observing the debate, Peter and Leni Gillman felt that the essence of who Mallory was as an individual had been lost. In The Wildest Dream they offer the most comprehensive biography ever written about one of the 20th century's most intriguing personalities. Exploring Mallory's early years, the Gillmans take the reader to Cambridge and Bloomsbury where Mallory consorted with some of the most colorful literary and artistic figures of Edwardian England: Rupert Brooke, James and Lytton Strachey, Maynard and Geoffrey Keynes, and Duncan Grant, among others. The Wildest Dream moves on to examine exactly what Mallory accomplished as a climber, evaluating the quality of his routes and skills within the context of climbing in the early 1900s. At the heart of this biography, and of Mallory's life, is his wife, Ruth. The letters they exchanged during the many separations caused by World War I and three Everest expeditions reveal the depth of their commitment to each other and the unwavering support and strength Ruth offered George. The Everest expeditions are also insightfully rendered, offering perspective on criticisms levied at Mallory after the 1921 and 1922 attempts. The authors examine how Mallory, a dedicated husband and father, arrived at his fateful decision to participate in the doomed 1924 expedition and why he continued to press for a summit attempt when the odds seemed stacked against him. As Mallory once declared, a climber was what he was, and this is what climbers did; this was how they fulfilled their wildest dreams.

A New York Times Bestseller A dramatic, inspiring memoir by legendary rock climber Tommy Caldwell, the first person to free climb the Dawn Wall of Yosemite’s El Capitan “The rarest of adventure reads: it thrills with colorful details of courage and perseverance but it enriches readers with an absolutely captivating glimpse into how a simple yet unwavering resolve can turn adversity into reward.” —The Denver Post A finalist for the Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature On January 14, 2015, Tommy Caldwell, along with his partner, Kevin Jorgeson, summited what is widely regarded as the hardest climb in history—Yosemite’s nearly vertical 3,000-foot Dawn Wall, after nineteen days on the route. Caldwell’s odds-defying feat was the culmination of an entire lifetime of pushing himself to his limits as an athlete. This engrossing memoir chronicles the journey of a boy with a fanatical mountain-guide father who was determined to instill toughness in his son to a teen whose obsessive nature drove him to the top of the sport-climbing circuit. Caldwell’s affinity for adventure then led him to the vertigo-inducing and little understood world of big wall free climbing. But his evolution as a climber was not without challenges; in his early twenties, he was held hostage by militants in a harrowing ordeal in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Soon after, he lost his left index finger in an accident. Later his wife, and main climbing partner, left him. Caldwell emerged from these hardships with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. He set his sights on free climbing El Capitan’s biggest, steepest, blankest face—the Dawn Wall. This epic assault took more than seven years, during which time Caldwell redefined the sport, found love again, and became a father. The Push is an arresting story of focus, drive, motivation, endurance, and transformation, a book that will appeal to anyone seeking to overcome fear and doubt, cultivate perseverance, turn failure into growth, and find connection with family and with the natural world.

A cult figure in Europe and Spain's hottest talent, Ray Loriga, impresses the literary world with each new work of his innovative fiction. With his intense new novel Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore, Loriga lays bare the world we live in, the drug culture that surrounds us, the nature of forgetfulness, and the implacable tyranny of emotions. Set in the very near future, it is the story of a traveling salesman floating from arid Arizona parking lots to steamy Bangkok bars to peddle the hottest new commodity for a group known only as The Company. What he has is a drug that erases memory. You can choose your oblivion, be it one mistake or a lifetime of pain, but things become hazy when our hero begins sampling the goods and reaches the point where he can't even remember what it is he cannot remember. A pitch-perfect mood piece for our times, quickened with his graceful and hypnotic prose, Loriga is tackling nothing less than the question of what it means to be human when everything, including human identity, can be bought. This is a novel as compelling as they come from a writer who is not to be forgotten.

«Ho raccontato più volte che la sfida dei quattordici ottomila è nata con una storia d'amore e lo strano è che le mie parole sono sempre state interpretate in senso figurato, quando invece erano reali. Ma forse non è poi così strano, visto che quanto mi accingo a dire adesso non l'ho quasi mai rivelato.» Un libro confessione, questo di Edurne Pasaban, una fra i maggiori interpreti dell'himalaysmo contemporaneo, che racconta di un'adolescenza trascorsa più fra i boschi e le montagne che in discoteca e che prosegue con l'ineluttabilità di una passione invincibile: quella per l'alpinismo. Una passione che non le ha impedito di laurearsi in ingegneria e di lavorare per anni nell'azienda di famiglia prima di fare dell'alpinismo la sua professione, una scelta quasi obbligata per chi matura la determinazione di salire tutti i quattordici ottomila. Perché Edurne Pasaban ha deciso da subito di non entrare nel mondo della roccia e del free climbing, ma di puntare all'alpinismo affascinante e avventuroso degli ottomila. La sfida più ardua, soprattutto per una donna che si muove in un ambiente tradizionalmente maschile e ancora machista, ma in cui Edurne Pasaban ha saputo imporsi con autorevolezza tecnica, spirito di sacrificio e con la propria femminilità.
