Long Description:
Tony Howard was one of the seven climbers who climbed the Troll Wall in 1965. 50 years later, he publishes the story of the perilous climb.

"Norway, 1965. A team of young climbers from the north of England camp at the bottom of the tallest vertical rock face in Europe – the Troll Wall. No one has dared attempt this gigantic challenge before. Some say it will never be climbed. This will be the adventure of a lifetime.

Rain and snow soak them as they climb. Avalanches and loose rock threaten their lives. A Norwegian team arrives to compete for the glory as the world’s media look on. Pushed to the limits of exhaustion, the team spends days on the wall, refusing to give in, even when failure seems certain." Source: (visit link)

When you stand on the ground and look at the Troll Wall, it is incomprehensible that anyone dares to climb up the almost vertical mountain.
