The Ogre by Doug Scott
Item # 9781912560929
product description Baintha Brakk, a 7,000-meter mountain in the Karakoram mountain range, has the nickname the 'Ogre' for a reason. Considered one of the most challenging climbs, the descent proved to be more harrowing for two climbers in 1977. The Ogre by Doug Scott recounts the duo's weeklong descent with broken ribs and legs, only to find the base camp empty. Along with a detailed and vivid recounting of their adventure, this book is also a biography of the peak itself. Readers get a history and geography lesson while being put in the middle of the adventure.
