A collection of enjoyable and sometimes funny short stories that were originally published in Outside Magazine. This book precedes Krakauer's "Into the Wild" which put Jon on the mainstream map, and of course "Into Thin Air", which is my favorite book of the past 10 years. Read by the author. Stories like these are easy to listen to several times.

If you want to be swept up into the fierce world of triumph and loss in the world of climbing look no further than Jon Krakauer. He delves into the world of climbing, talks about famous, infamous and tragic figures and places and inspires me towards the limits of my potential. Does not specifically focus on Eiger, but it and other climbs.

Loved the story but the narration or the audio quality is terrible. Compared with the other audiobooks I've listened to this one is simply appalling from a quality point. I'm not sure if it's been recorded poorly or what has gone wrong but it's actually so low and hissy that I found it difficult to listen to, effectively ruining any joy the exceptional stories would have given me.
A great mix of rescue / disaster stories and commentary on the climbing scene (s). The quality of the recording seems poor compared to other audiobooks.
