Well-known for his Himalayan expeditions and first
ascents on rock walls in Australia and the United States,
Greg Child freely admits his mixed feelings about
climbing. Overwhelming are the loss of friends, the
thrill of achievement, and the soul-shattering moments of
risk and survival; but it is precisely these experiences
that compel him to write and to continue climbing. In
Mixed Emotions, Child remembers the mountains, the
people, and the episodes that have made him feel life
acutely, including the 1986 K2 tragedy that killed 13
climbers; a near-fatal snakebite in his native Australia;
and the loss of climbing partner Pete Thexton.
