On Thin Ice is the second book by Mick Fowler, after Vertical Pleasure and presents subsequent climbs (and attempts). It is written in the same pleasurable mix of wit and (so typically British) understatement.

The book provides a detailed account of Mick Fowler and Paul Ramsden's ascent of the N face of Siguniang in China (for which they won the Piolet d'Or award).

From the editor:
Mick Fowler - Britain's most successful exponent of lightweight mountaineering in the greater ranges describes his international climbs - an important book recording several historic ascents. Climbs include Aksu in Kirgistan, Taweche in Nepal, Changabang in India, Arwa Tower in India, Mount Kennedy in Alaska and Siguniang in China - the latter received international acclaim and was awarded the American "Golden Piton" and the French "Piolet d'Or".
