This guide celebrates the pleasures and possibilities of the alpine-style approach to climbing the 6000-, 7000- and 8000-metre peaks of the Himalaya and the Karakoram. It highlights 40 of the world's finest climbs, a mixture of modern test pieces and older classic routes, varying in height, length and difficulty, on both rock and ice. Each carefully chosen route has been climbed in alpine-style, or at least by a small team using only the minimum of fixed rope. Collectively they illustrate the enormous variety of climbing and potential for small self-sufficient groups in the world's greatest range of mountains.
