    În 1985, Joe Simpson si prietenul sau Simon Yates reusesc sa escaladeze pentru prima data masivul Siula Grande pe fata lui vestica. De pe vârf, la 6.344 de metri altitudine, cei doi admira privelistea Anzilor peruvieni care se întind cât vezi cu ochii. Entuziasmul lor se va risipi însa curând, pentru ca la coborâre lucrurile iau o întorsatura dramatica: Joe aluneca pe un perete de gheata si, în cadere, îsi rupe piciorul. Simon încearca sa-l coboare cu ajutorul a doua corzi legate una de alta. Se lasa întunericul, izbucneste furtuna, iar la un moment dat Joe ramâne suspendat în gol. Neputând sa comunice cu el si constient ca risca sa-si piarda amândoi viata, Simon decide în cele din urma sa taie coarda. Joe cade într-o crevasa, iar Simon se întoarce în tabara, obsedat de gândul ca prietenul lui a murit. Urmatoarele trei zile vor fi un cosmar si pentru unul, si pentru celalalt… Documentarul bazat pe aceasta carte a fost distins cu premiul BAFTA pentru cel mai bun film britanic al anului 2004 si a fost inclus pe lista PBS a celor mai bune 100 de documentare din toate timpurile.

    When Simon Yates cut the rope and sent his friend plummeting to an ordeal few mountaineers can have contemplated, the outcome was totally unpredictable. That Joe Simpson survived is a revelation of the power of the human spirit to overcome fear, pain and deprivation of almost unimaginable intensity. He did not expect to live it all over again - more than once. The first test was to write his award-winning account of the ordeal in Touching the Void. That meant dragging the terrifying experience out of the deeper shadows of his memory. Next another fall in the Himalayas crippled and almost broke him. He felt forced to test his nerve again and struggled on crutches to 20,000 feet on Pumori, near Everest. On his descent he heart that a young first-time climber had been killed by a chance rockfall. What sense could he make now of this game of ghosts that had claimed the lives of so many of his friends. In an attempt to find catharsis for his confused emotions he wrote this extraordinary memoir, in which he recalls the signposts directing him since childhood to measure fear and embrace the unknown.
