KIRKUS REVIEW

The climb of Haramosh, a mountain 1000 miles northeast of Karachi in the Himalayas by five young men is sensitively recorded here. The mission, organized by Jillott, one year out of Oxford, consisted also of a voluble American, a New Zealander, and two other Englishmen of unique qualities. Dull skies, avalanches, reluctant natives and tortuous cliffs conspire against the success of the group, and ultimately two of its members perish. Gripping, this is a book of adventure and of man's tenacious desire to ""see over the next hill.
