Absolute classic by one of the few true legends of climbing. The writing itself is mostly in the 3 star range with an occasional gem tossed in. The content is where this book shines and you'd need to know something about the routes under discussion to fully comprehend just how understated Hermann is in his descriptions. Hermann was a man of principle and he adhered to the purest ethical standards, but he didn't preach excessively. Must-have!!!
