Published by Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1995, 1st Edition, D/w, Fine.   The project to publish this volume was taken over by Stephen Venables, mountaineer and award-winning author, in 1992, following the untimely death of Andy Fanshawe who fell from Eagle Ridge on Lochnagar in Scotland shortly before his 29th birthday.  Large format landscape, featuring 200 stunning colour photographs, this is a celebration of the pleasures and possibilities of the alpine-style approach to climbing 6000, 7000 and 8000 metre peaks in the Himalaya and Karakoram.  Forty Alpine-style Himalayan climbs are described, including The Ogre, K2, Nanga Parbat, Nanda Devi, Annapurna, Everest, Kangchenjunga, Broad Peak, Trango Tower, Makalu and many more.
