Book: Touching the Void by Joe Simpson
Excerpt: "It took some experimentation before I had found the best method of crawling. The soft wet snow made it hard to slide. I quickly realized that facing forwards on one knee and both arms was too painful."
This is describing Joe's struggle to make it back to base camp after falling in a crevasse and breaking his leg--oh, and being abandoned by his friend and climbing companion.
