This is a peak by peak account of perhaps the greatest achievement of mountaineer Reinhold Messner - the ascent of the world's 14 8000 metre peaks between 1970 and 1986. The fourteen chapters describe the difficulties, tragedies and ultimate successes of the ascent of each peak. In these pages is the voice of a man suffering -loneliness, despair, hallucinations, the deaths of his brother and friends - but triumphing in the end - and the voice of a man conquering the barriers set up by nature.

'The wall was the ambition, the style became the obsession.' In the autumn of 1982, a single stone fell from high on the south face of Annapurna and struck Alex MacIntyre on the head, killing him instantly and robbing the climbing world of one of its greatest talents. Although only twenty-eight years old, Alex was already one of the leading figures of British mountaineering's most successful era. His ascents included hard new routes on Himalayan giants like Dhaulagiri and Changabang and a glittering record of firsts in the Alps and Andes. Yet how Alex climbed was as important as what he climbed. He was a mountaineering prophet, sharing with a handful of contemporaries - including his climbing partner Voytek Kurtyka - the vision of a purer form of alpinism on the world's highest peaks. One Day As A Tiger, John Porter's revelatory and poignant memoir of his friend Alex MacIntyre, shows mountaineering at its extraordinary best and tragic worst - and draws an unforgettable picture of a dazzling, argumentative and exuberant legend.

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.

El largo camino de Rodrigo Fica por develar los misterios de la zona de la muerte, aquel extremo ambiente carente de oxígeno que se da por sobre los 8 mil metros de altitud y que en nuestro planeta solo se encuentra en Himalaya. Un periplo que convergió con otros similares que sus compañeros de aventuras llevaban a cabo, transformando sus éxitos y fracasos en el hilo conductor de una narración que no solo ahonda en el montañismo, sino que también reflexiona acerca de los valores que existen en la sociedad. Esta búsqueda, además, lo hizo presenciar parte relevante de la historia del alpinismo nacional en dicha lejana cordillera, lo que aprovecha para entregar el primer recuento histórico de las actividades del himalayismo chileno; incluyendo sus orígenes, la carrera del Everest y el esfuerzo por conquistar las 14 cimas que se encuentran en la zona de la muerte. Un honesto relato que desnuda los profundos temores del alma humana al acometer lo desconocido, usando para ello el vano juego de la extrema altitud, uno que en los tiempos modernos se ha dado en llamar la más extrema experiencia deportiva, si es que no de vida, que el ser humano puede enfrentar.

"If my library was to somehow catch fire and I could only save one book, the long out of print Conquistadors of the Useless, by Lionel Terray, would be it." -- Explore magazine "The finest mountaineering narrative ever written." -- David Roberts, author of Mountain of My Fear * One of National Geographic Adventure's "100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time" * The story of ground-breaking climbs told with insight and wit * A mountaineering classic brought back into print Frenchman Lionel Terray is one of mountaineering history's greatest alpinists, and his autobiography, Conquistadors of the Useless, stands among the "100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time", according to National Geographic Adventure magazine. Following World War II, when France desperately needed successes to heal its wounds, Terray emerged as a national hero, conquering summits atop the planet's highest mountains. This biography of Lionel Terry is filled with first-time feats and acts of bravery in the face of unspeakable odds. He climbed with legends such as Maurice Herzog, Gaston Rebuffat, and Louis Lachenal. He made first ascents in the Alps, Alaska, the Andes, and the Himalaya. Terray's gripping story captures the energy of an optimistic world shaking off the restraints of war and austerity. It's a mountaineering classic.

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.

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.

When Jerry Moffatt burst onto the scene as a brash 17-year-old, rock climbing had never seen anyone like him before. Fiercely ambitious, even as a boy Moffatt was focused on one thing: being the best in the world. This is the story of his meteoric rise to stardom, and how he overcame injury to stay at the top for over two decades. Top sport climber, brilliant competitor and a pioneer in the new game of bouldering, Moffatt's story is that of climbing itself in the last thirty years. Yet Jerry Moffatt is more than a dedicated athlete. Travelling the world to fulfil his dreams, his story is a compelling and often hilarious account of the climbing community with all its glories, dangers and foibles, as well as the story of a true sporting legend. Grand Prize Winner - Banff Mountain Book Festival 2009.

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.

Patagonia’s Cerro Torre, considered by many the most beautiful peak in the world, draws the finest and most devoted technical alpinists to its climbing challenges. But controversy has swirled around this ice-capped peak since Cesare Maestri claimed first ascent in 1959. Since then a debate has raged, with world-class climbers attempting to retrace his route but finding only contradictions. This chronicle of hubris, heroism, controversies and epic journeys offers a glimpse into the human condition, and why some pursue extreme endeavors that at face value have no worth.
