'It's what's behind the myths that George Lowe's camera captures so completely, and which makes this book such a great celebration of these ambitious mountaineers and their achievement.' - Traveller
'The photographs are stunning and, in many cases, moving' - Financial Times
'This book is an incredible homage to some of the bravest of men and gives a hugely emotional and historical insight into their different journeys and the friendships that formed throughout. The photography is a true step into their world and humbles you to behold it' - Photography Monthly
