Maurice Herzog, pioneering Annapurna mountaineer, dies
If you haven’t read Annapurna by Maurice Herzog, I strongly recommend you put this book on your Christmas list – it is a fascinating read about the exploratation of the Himalaya 8000m peaks. When the expedition set out they didn’t know whether they were going to climb Annapurna or Dhaulagiri – it depended which mountain they found first! Now that’s what I call a proper recce trip!
