The Beckoning Silence By Joe Simpson


The Beckoning Silence By Joe Simpson

The heart of The Beckoning Silence grows out of Simpson's discussion with fellow climber, Ray Delaney, about the final "tick list" climbs he must do before he can quit mountaineering for good. Through his account of the seductive attraction of the Eiger's North Face and its history, as well as his own attempt on it, Simpson reveals the inner truth of climbing, exploring the power of the mind and the frailty of the body.
