A Slender Thread : Escaping Disaster in the Himalaya, Paperback / softback Book

A Slender Thread : Escaping Disaster in the Himalaya Paperback / softback

Description

Together with Chris Bonington and other distinguished British climbers, Stephen Venables was high on the unclimbed and sacred mountain of Panch Chuli when, at 1am on a dark Himalayan night, his abseil failed and he fell catastrophically, somersaulting from rock to rock and landing, seriously-wounded, at the end of a rope suspended above a 50-degree icefield.

This is the story of his arduous and almost miraculous survival, and of the brilliant, committed teamwork which brought him to safety.
