I served with the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey, The IGY under Sir Edmond Hillary and Sir Vivian Fuchs. We were all aware of the tremendous climb by Herman Buhl... "the next pitch was impossible, but we carries on, Buhl". I have only climbed to 23K, but Buhl's gripping account of the last few feet of the ascent, and the overnight in the elephant bag are gripping. It is sad that for me as a young boy this ascent was overshadowed by Hillary's ascent of Everest. I seem to recall, in the early sixties, I think, that I met the MIGHTY Aschenbrenner in Kitzbuhl sitting on a bridge that was the meeting place of most of the notable climbers of the pre-war era. I hope that my memory is not fading. Love the book, Nanga Parbat. Bob Lee Bloomfield Hills, Mi USA
