Rappels - Louis Lachenal


Shipping to United States: $22.71

The Guérin-Paulsen publishing house and his red collection's book has become a staple of Alpine literature, with the editorial line of developing around biography surveys, explorations of all kinds.

"Rappels" The found book of Louis Lachenal, wounded conqueror of Annapurna.

June 1950, Louis Lachenal stands with Maurice Herzog at the top of Annapurna, the "first 8000" in history. When the two mountaineers return to France, frozen feet, the victory becomes epic.

After five years of forced silence, he is preparing a book, which was almost completed when a crevasse engulfed him, in the fall of 1955. It is this book that we have reconstructed and illustrated with more than 300 photos, often previously unpublished.

To rediscover a mountaineering giant, virtuoso and so modern.
