One of the best mountaineers of our generation finally reveals the details of his many exciting extreme alpine ascents - ascents in which his only equipment is a pair of shoes and a small bag for holding chalk. Clinging to the crevasses in mountain walls, with muscles bulging as he makes his free ascent, Huber has become one of the world's most recognized and photographed extreme alpine climbers. Along with many other legendary ascents detailed here, he and his brother set a new record of 2 hours and 46 minutes on El Capitan, The Nose, Yosemite Park in the fall of 2007 - a climb that usually takes three days. When he free-soloed the Kommunist's famous peaks, Alexander Huber declared, "Why? For me, it is the search for my limits. On the other side, I am aware that the time is limited." With major corporate sponsors like Adidas and Atmoic, this is a fascinating insight into one of the world's best mountaineers.
