AKA Shishapangma (8012m)
By Robert Goh
This is Robert's first book, tracing his mountaineering career from its earliest days as a pupil in an English boarding school. The book is filled with useful information on how he prepared and trained for the alpine ascent of Mount Xixabangma. This book is the only one about climbing Xixabangma via the north ridge. It has a forward by famous American mountaineer Eric Simonson.
Legendary British Himalayan alpinist Sir Doug Scott who made an alpine style ascent of Xixabangma's Southwest Face in 1982, comments on Robert's book:
"Every mountaineer should read this book, especially those from Asia. Here are mature reflections upon the lightweight and pure alpine style of climbing big mountains."
