Year after year, climbers return to the world's most difficult mountains. At these places, even the most cautious climber is vulnerable to mistakes, bad weather and bad luck, which often leads to death. This collection offers harrowing accounts of extreme mountaineering and its potentially fatal consequences.

I expected a collection of real climbing stories.. instead what I listened to was a collection of stories ranging from booring to absolutely booring. The stories in this audiobook are slow, flaccid tales not of mountaineering, but of fluff and bloat. Be warned, the description of the book is completely innacurate. This is not for someone looking for extreme stories and accounts from rock, snow and ice, but for someone interested in fiction and weak narratives loosly pertaining to climbing. (Example, one story is a finctional tale of a climber taking his mother to the top of a trecherous climb while wrapped and stowed in a sort of sleeping bag...) Just my 2 cents... if you buy it, I do hope you enjoy it.

Fact or Fiction

This was entertaining enough, but for those of us who enjoy reading true mountaineering stories, it was a bit disappointing. The best stories seemed to be fiction, while most of the true accounts were boring essays on why climbers continue on despite the risks.
