About the Author

Joe Simpson was born in India in 1960. His career as a climber and mountaineer has taken him all over the world and tackled some of its most dangerous and difficult slopes. He is the survivor of numerous life-threatening injuries incurred during his expeditions, which he recounts in his award-winning books. He lives in Sheffield.


Grippingly told...there is no question Simpson is a brilliant adventure writer. There are passages that had my heart racing * Observer *
Eloquent, spine-chilling stuff * SUNDAY TIMES *
No one conjures the thrill of altitude better than Simpson...A hugely enjoyable book...As far as mountaineering literature goes this is about as good as it gets * Sara Wheeler, Spectator *
An engrossing read. Nobody evokes the physical and psychological realities of climbing better...a powerfully written vivid as anything Simpson has yet produced * Sunday Telegraph *
Heart-stopping stuff...This is not a book for the fainthearted and perhaps should come with a government health warning...a book that will have your fingers clutching imaginary rocks and palms sweating over every page * Scotsman *
