It is night still, and freezing cold. But the mountaineers have already set off. They are moving up the steep mountain sides lighting the way with their headlamps. A rope connects the mountaineers. But they are also bound together by a shared dream: They all want to reach the summit.
Steffen Kjaer is a mountaineer and a journalist. He describes the challenges of the mountains as only someone can who has actually been there and wielded an ice axe himself. For more than ten years, he has been climbing one legendary peak after another, and in this book he tells about the way to the top.
The book is illustrated throughout with impressive photos.
