Dal retro di copertina:
What is it like to have reached the tallest summits on the globe? Find out in Blind Corners, Geoff Tabin's fascinating book on his quest to find the ultimate adventure. Travel with Tabin across seven continents as he takes readers, from Kenya to Alaska to Nepal, where he begins his ascent of the most challenging mountain of all-Everest. He shares his experiences trekking up the daunting Kangshung Face, easily the mountain's most difficult route, as well as those of fellow climbers, including the first American woman to climb Everest.Filled with suspense, candor, keen insight, and mischievous humor, Blind Corners conveys both the terror and the exhilaration of nature's greatest challenges. Recounting everything from the world's first bungee jump to his ascent of Everest, Tabin lays out his philosophy of climbing, offers tips on keeping adventure in your life after having realized dream goals, and warns against the dangers of guided expeditions on perilous climbs, which by now have become routine.More than just a book on climbing the highest peaks of the world, Blind Corners is a richly detailed chronicle of adventure, comradeship, and inner strength. (6 x 9, 304 pages)Geoff Tabin writes an adventure column, "View from the Top," for Penthouse and has written for Outside, Success, Climbing, and Playboy, among other periodicals. He has also contributed to four other mountaineering books and has appeared on The American Sportsman and Late Night with David Letterman. He lives in Burlington, Vermont.
