Touching the Void

In 1985, two British climbers set out to tame the unconquered west face of Siula Grande, a remote peak in the Peruvian Andes. Two-and-a-half days after tiptoeing up near-vertical ice fields, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates reached the summit. But their struggle was only beginning. What ensued is one of the most gripping survival stories in mountain history.
