ByGerry Roach

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Gerry Roach’s quest for the Seven Summits spanned four decades and went far beyond the traditional Seven Continent Summits or even the Eight Summits. His climbs of continent summits were interspersed with many other climbs and expeditions, and he climbed through an era when it was not so easy to reach remote destinations. This, the first book of three describing his quest, covers Denali 1963, Kosciuszko 1968, Mont Blanc 1973, Kilimanjaro 1973, Aconcagua 1975, and Mount Foraker 1975. Gerry went on to became the second person to complete the Seven Continent Summits in 1985 and climbed Carstenz Pyramid in 1994. Ten Tadasanas traces many other climbs beyond these eight summits. It is an intimate look into Gerry's life and love of the mountains. Gerry has a unique ability to put his readers on belay and take them to the heights with him. Clip in and enjoy the ride!
