Pressestimmen

"An exceptional book." - BOARDMAN TASKER PRIZE 2009 "Beyond the Mountain takes the road less travelled. House takes the same approach he advocates for in alpinism - that of innovation, boldness, honesty and simplicity and uses it to produce a story of lasting depth." - BANFF MOUNTAIN BOOK FESTIVAL 2009 "The rare climbing book that I felt compelled to read cover to cover in just a few sittings." - DOUGALD MACDONALD, UKCLIMBING.COM"

Kurzbeschreibung

What does it take to be one of the world's best high-altitude mountain climbers? A lot of fundraising; traveling in some of the world's most dangerous countries; enduring cold bivouacs, searing lungs, and a cloudy mind when you can least afford one. It means learning the hard lessons the mountains teach.

Steve House built his reputation on ascents throughout the Alps, Canada, Alaska, the Karakoram and the Himalaya that have expanded possibilities of style, speed, and difficulty. In 2005 Steve and alpinist Vince Anderson pioneered a direct new route on the Rupal Face of 26,600-foot Nanga Parbat, which had never before been climbed in alpine style. It was the third ascent of the face and the achievement earned Steveand Vince the first Piolet d"or (Golden Ice Axe) awarded to North Americans.

Steve is an accomplished and spellbinding storyteller in the tradition of Maurice Herzog and Lionel Terray. Beyond the Mountain is a gripping read destined to be a mountain classic. And it

This is one of the most inspiring mountaineering books I've ever read. It actually took me some days after finishing it, to realize I was not a superhuman climber, and that I had to go to the office every morning.

Winner of the 2009 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature. Nanga Parbat book ends Steve House's climbing career with his early attempt on Nanga Parbat in 1990, and his successful ascent in 2005 with Vince Anderson of a new route on the extremely difficult Nanga Parbat Rupal Face Central Pillar, done in five days plus two down, in alpine style, making them winners of the famous Piolet d`Or that year.

In between, Steve chronicles his climbs, including the unclimbed Denali Father and Son Wall in 1995, a new route solo on Denali Washburn Wall in 1996, the second ascent of the Barely Legal ice pillar in 1995, his harrowing escape from a crevasse on the Nant Blanc Glacier near Petit Dru in 1996, an attempt on the Emperor Face of Mount Robson in 1997, ascent of Howse Peak in 1999, attending Alex Lowe's funeral in October 1999, a 60 hour alpine push on the Denali Slovak Direct route in June 2000, a fast 25 hour ascent of the Mount Foraker Infinite Spur in 2001, an attempt on the Nuptse South Face in 2002, an attempt on Masherbrum and K7 in 2003, the third ascent of the Twin Tower in 2004, the second ascent of K7 in one single 42 hour push on his seventh attempt in 2004, a failed attempt on Nanga Parbat in 2004, and the North Face of Mount Alberta with Vince Anderson in 2008. There are 20 pages of colour photos, 60 pages of bw photos, and 3 maps.

After climbing in Slovenia, House participated in his first attempt on Nanga Parbat on a Slovene expedition. trying the Schell Route. On July 31, 1990 Marija Frantar and Joze Rozman reached the summit via the Schell Route.

This book is a nice change to all the other mountaineering / climbing books (Reinhold Messner, Jon Krakauer) I have read so far. This book is not about a crazy ascent, where the protagonist barely makes it back to the base camp, with a broken leg and frozen fingers.

This book is about Steve House one of the best alpinists I have ever heart of. He is a strong believer in alpine style climbing (you do not leave any gear at the mountain, compared to the expedition style where you work with fixed ropes and leave a lot of trash behind). That makes his climbs more dangerous, but also much more faster and flexibel. Steve House is famous for doing extremely long and remote ascents.

In the book he writes about his experiences in the world of mountains, the detailed descriptions of his ascents and descents and the really nice pictures give you the feeling you are on the mountain with him. He leaves out any artificial drama but describes the situations how he remembers it. He describes also how important partnership and trust is while doing such extreme routes.

But what I like most about this book, is that he also talks about the down side of this passion, death of friends, extrem situations where it can go either way. This book gives you also a deep insight in his motives and thoughts. What drives a man to climb on ice and rock for 60 h, what is he looking for?
If you want to know the answer to this question you should definitely read Beyond the Mountain, if you rather want to read an adventure book, you should choose another one.

I only gave the book four stars because I think for people without mountaineering experience it will be difficult to understand all the technical terms.

A great insight in House's mind. I enjoyed the read. It's a little dark at times, which I like. There is no posing and shiny summits. I would recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling 16. Oktober 2009
Von bradw2k - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In Beyond the Mountain, Steve skillfully plots his career with a series of truly amazing stories. Mostly we are treated to gripping descriptions of climbing at the edge of human ability, in which his relentless drive risks his life for reasons he struggles to identify. But there are also understated love stories here -- not of romance, but of the partners and others who have meant the most to him personally in his vertical pursuits. Steve seems to have put all of himself into this work, writing with a psychological honesty that is uncommon, reliving for us his victories and moments of clarity, but also his intense inner struggles with the desire to succeed and the fear of failure, the love of the sport and the crushing despair over fallen friends, the will to risk everything and the nagging question of why he does this given the intense personal costs. It is because of his brutal honesty, with others but mostly with himself, that what Steve gives us here is truly a gift, a glimpse into another man's soul, so that ironically this biography of the uber-athlete is the story of Everyman. You will start to read it because it is the must-read of the year for everyone who has ever felt the thrill of going on belay, but you will blast through it and then dwell on it for days because Steve has not tried to oversimplify or falsely dramatize or glorify, but only to describe his lifelong quest to answer with his body the fundamental question of how one should find meaning and fulfillment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finding Beauty in Pain, Partnership, and Purpose 17. Oktober 2009
Von Tim Ternstrom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
When most of the accomplishments in mountaineering are so summit oriented, alloyed with sponsorship and even reality TV, how can you not be pleased to read the account of someone whose accompishments are purity of the opposite? The value of the climb, the route, and the unique experience of successful climbing partnership are lost to all except the climber. Steve House brings this all back to its proper value and vividly in his own words. This book is an act of Alpine art in itself. No Sherpa support, no supplemental oxygen, only minimal equipment, and nothing left on the mountain!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Read and Insight into the Mind of Genius 23. Mai 2011
Von Christopher J. Scott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Just to pile on here... This book is a masterpiece. It does not tell the story of "a climb." It does not tell the story of an approach to climbing. It tells the story of a man who climbs, one of the world's best climbers, and that makes this book unique from my experience of reading mountaineering literature. It's not just a biography. It is a confession, of the fears, hopes, shortcomings, and hard work of being Steve House. This is truly a unique and enjoyable book!

2.0 von 5 Sternen better climber than writer 28. November 2012
Von Derek Fox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am surprised at all the positive reviews. I have read much on this genre, and was familiar with the mountains and partners written about. I found the writing dull and forced. There is little description about his efforts, but much spent describing various climbing moves. There is zero discussion about expedition funding. I hated the final chapter as he climbed the Rupal face...I didn't like the way he went from back and forth from the ascent and descent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen compelling, honest 22. Oktober 2009
Von Mark E. Postle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Beyond the Mountain is a must read for anyone interested in alpinism and the motivations and sacrifices of those who practice it at its highest levels. Steve House obviously went through a lot of soul searching to write this account of his career to date leading up to his successful ascent of Nanga Parbat. The result comes off as an honest and heart felt tale which is a pleasure to read and left this reader with as many questions about personal motivation and accomplishment as it did provide answers. Highly recommended.
