The golden age of Himalayan mountaineering, from the mid-1970s to the 1980s, brought forth a generation of radical young climbers. With tiny budgets and high ambitions they pioneered fast and light, alpine-style expeditions on mountains such as Jannu, Nuptse, Everest and K2.

In High Risk, Brian Hall recalls the outrageous adventures of eleven of his climbing friends who risked - and often lost - their lives to stand on some of the world's highest peaks during a legendary period in mountaineering history.
