42 The Torch & The Brotherhood

Posted on: April 28, 2013

In the 1990s and early 2000s, alpinists like Steve House, Barry Blanchard and Mark Twight created an intimidating legacy of transcendent ascents and rebellious manifestos. Twight's books, Kiss or Kill and Extreme Alpinism, remain some of the most influential works of climbing literature today. Last summer, when Kyle Dempster traveled to the Karakoram to climb K7 and the Ogre I, he contemplated what his own, younger generation might contribute.
