Together with Chris Bonington and other distinguished British climbers, Stephen Venables was high on the unclimbed and sacred mountain of Panch Chuli when, at 1am on a dark Himalayan night, his abseil failed and he fell catastrophically, somersaulting from rock to rock and landing, seriously-wounded, at the end of a rope suspended above a 50-degree icefield.
This is the story of his arduous and almost miraculous survival, and of the brilliant, committed teamwork which brought him to safety.
Illustrated with b&w images.
