Rand lives free; lean, pure and defiant, the world has little influence on him.
His passion is climbing - the mountains, the huge vertical faces.
There, where storms, snow, or rockfall can kill, he finds his happiness, sometimes climbing with others, sometimes alone.
This is a novel of obsession and where it leads. Rand, not intending it, becomes suddenly famous for a daring rescue in the Alps.
What happens when passion is spent and what becomes of heroes is revealed in this terse and powerfully written novel.
