The Naked Mountain
BlurbJune, 1970. Reinhold Messner is on his first 8000-meter peak. A desperate decent from the summit of Nanga Parbat leaves Messner's younger brother, Gunther, dead - lost on the mountain. The event forever marks Messner, a man driven to push the boundaries of what seems possible. It also sparks a bitter controversy: Had Messner violated the plan and the route dictated by the team leader for his own selfish ends? Did he take unnecessary risks, sacrificing his brother to ambition? Or did the team leader deliberately set the Messner brothers up for failure? In The Naked Mountain Reinhold Messner tells his side of the story in full for the first time.
