Troll Wall

Tony Howard


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 given in, even when
failure seems certain.

Troll Wall tells the gripping story of
one of the most dramatic first ascents in
British climbing history. Written days after
their success, almost half a century ago, and
newly rediscovered, Tony Howard's account
is a fascinating insight into the challenges of
climbing a big mountain wall.

Foreword by Doug Scott
Written only days after the ascent, the
gripping story of the first ascent of Europe's
biggest rock face
