Widely admired - Sir Ranulph Fiennes calls it "a truly inspiring read" - and the winner of the Guardian First Book Award. It is best described, perhaps, as an account of his own and other people's fascination with climbing, and personal memoir weaves skilfully through stories of famous ascents and philosphical musings on the attractions of these beautiful and damgerous wildest of places.
