Unterwegs zwis­chen Him­mel und Erde

Vertical (English) - - Euronews - Stephan Siegrist, Unterwegs zwis­chen Him­mel und Erde (Trav­el­ing be­tween Delius Klas­ing, 146 pages.

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.
