As a child Simpson was inspired by the story of Toni Kurz, a brilliant young climber who, in 1936, died on the Eiger in the most horrific circumstances, hanging onto the end of a rope. Over 50 years later in Peru, Kurz?s story haunted Simpson as he battled for his own survival while hanging in mid-air. His plight uncannily mirrored that of Kurz ? except against all the odds, Simpson survived while his hero had perished. After the accident, Joe Simpson?s injuries were so severe he was told he?d never climb again. But knowing that he couldn?t give it up forced Simpson to confront a fundamental question: why, after coming so close to death, did he feel compelled to continue climbing? In his quest for answers, Simpson journeys back to where it all started for him, on the treacherous North Face of the Eiger.
