Inhaltsangabe: 'The photos are of the climbs that have captured my imagination, have taken me out of myself, gripped with fear, shattered with exhaustion, or filled with wonder just to be there. If they stimulate and motivate others to take a step into the unknown, then this book will have been of some value.' Doug Scott's historic ascent (with Dougal Haston) of the South-West Face of Everest in 1975 sparked a revolution in mountaineering, opening the way for climbers everywhere to adopt the rapid alpine style of ascent as they tackled the world's highest peaks. As part of an elite international group of climbers, Scott soon completed a string of major climbs on Shishapangma, Shivling, Nuptse, and notably on Kangchenjunga, where his ascent of the north ridge (with Pete Boardman and Joe Tasker) ranks among the greatest of the Himalayan climbs. Himalayan Climber is a stunning pictorial record of Scott's remarkable climbing career, covering 26 visits to the most fabled regions of the Greater Himalayan range, including the Hindu Kush, Tibet, the Karakoram, Ladakh, and Bhutan. Illustrated with over 400 dramatic colour photographs, Scott also narrates his adventures in other parts of the world: rock climbing in Derbyshire at the age of 11, bivouacking in freezing temperatures in the Alps and exploring the Atlas mountains as an aspirant climber. In over 30 years of Climbing, Scott has survived nights without oxygen at over 8,700 metres, a nine-day crawling descent from the Ogre with two broken legs and an avalanche on K2 that swept away his climbing partner. Despite this, he is still passionate and lighthearted in his depiction of a life spent in the mountains.
Inhaltsangabe: A lifetime's quest to the world's greatest ranges by one of Britain's most prolific and experienced climbers, Doug Scott.
