The Tower: A Chronicle of Climbing and Controversy on Cerro Torre by Kelly Cordes: Patagonia’s Cerro Torre, considered by many the most beautiful peak in the world, has been shrouded in controversy since it was first allegedly ascended in 1959. Cordes digs through the mystery to find the truth, which is as clouded as the legendary peak itself.

Patagonia’s Cerro Torre, considered by many the most beautiful peak in the world, draws the finest and most devoted technical alpinists to its climbing challenges. But controversy has swirled around this ice-capped peak since Cesare Maestri claimed first ascent in 1959. Since then a debate has raged, with world-class climbers attempting to retrace his route but finding only contradictions. This chronicle of hubris, heroism, controversies and epic journeys offers a glimpse into the human condition, and why some pursue extreme endeavors that at face value have no worth. 400 pp. with photos and maps.
