Naked Mountain

Alpine Style – back in the Fifties, what was considered the Golden Age of mountaineering, those from the continental stomping grounds were considered the best. Here (right) is Hermann Buhl who took his experience from the Tyrol to the greater ranges of the Himalaya becoming one of the first to summit Nanga Parbat an 8000’er solo and in lightweight alpine style. Many climbers have used motorcycles to get to and from their cliff faces and peaks… me? I used to hitch rides to the crag.
