In 1997 Andy Cave returned from the Himalayas traumatized and frostbitten, having climbed the stupendous north face of Changabang but having lost his friend and climbing partner in the process. Would he ever have the courage to undertake such a challenge again? Thin White Line, set partly in Patagonia and partly in Alaska, provides the answer: in a nailbiting narrative of extreme experience, Cave tackles the severest challenges modern Alpinism can pose and recreates his experiences - and those of the adventurers around him, including the pioneer aviators who get him to those impossibly remote places - with utter conviction.
