Jim Donini: Patagonia and the Karakoram: Granite Crucibles of Alpinism

For sheer beauty as well as extreme climbing, the Latok-Ogre and the Fitzroy-Torre cirques are unmatched. Their siren call has drawn Jim Donini back to the soaring granite of the Karakoram and Patagonia over five decades. From his epic climbs on Latok 1 and Torre Egger, where he made the first ascent of the spectacular peak, to the towers of the Biafo this summer, Jim’s irreverent tales and spectacular mountain images capture the challenge and history of alpine climbing and portray the colorful cast of characters that are drawn to the planet’s most difficult summits.
