Simpson dedicates the book to his climbing partner, Simon Yates, and to those friends who have gone to the mountains and have not returned. What is it that compels certain individuals to willingly seek out the most inhospitable climate on earth?

To risk their lives in an attempt to leave footprints where few or none have gone before? Simpsons vivid narrative of a dangerous climbing expedition will convince even the most die-hard couch potato that such pursuits fall within the realm of the sane. As the author struggles ever higher, readers learn of the mountains awesome power, the beautiful--and sometimes deadly--sheets of blue glacial ice, and the accomplishment of a successful ascent.

And then catastrophe: the second half of Touching the Void sees Simpson at his darkest moment. With a smashed, useless leg, he and his partner must struggle down a near-vertical face--and thats only the beginning of their troubles.
