Fitschen's Walk with Terray thread made me go and dig this gem out of the archives. Lionel's best effort in North America from The Mountain World 1964/65 published by The Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research.

Oui..I know that LT died in a climbing accident in Vercors but was he with a client at the time? I heard that it was a rather freak accident of some sort..

I will take a look for you.

The Mountain World has some really outstanding write ups of important climbs.

I was really stoked to find this article.

I have Mountain World 1962/1963 and 1964/1965 for sale if anyone is interested in buying them. They do not have dust jackets but are in pretty good shape otherwise.

I have to concur with Steve. Probably one of the best mountain publications of its time. PM me if your interested.
