Unterwegs zwischen Himmel und Erde
Forty years old is a little early to start looking back on one’s career. Stephan Siegrist has already accomplished so much that a review is necessary. This guide and carpenter from the Bernese Alps earned himself a name with the first winter ascent of Cerro Torre. However, his climbing career includes several other mountains. In Antarctica, in the Himalaya, or in the mountains of his home country, he has established pioneering routes. He has climbed the Eiger almost thirty times, putting up new routes, descending via BASE jump, or trying his hand a highlining. Several large format photos illuminate his book, which enjoys the superb layout design from Delius Klasing publishing’s “mountain” collection.We would have preferred a bit more writing and information on the author’s adventures, but overall the book is a success, and it captures our attention with each turn of the page.
