About this title

Synopsis:

From an Amazon reader review: "A first class account of 'the villain's' adventures as one of the greatest mountaineers of the period 1950 - 1980. Lucid and objective writing - his accounts of the same climb - for example the west face of the Dru - can be compared to those of his companion Joe Brown (The Hard Years pub. 1967) and often they are sharper." Also, this appears to be ..."one of the most sought after and readable accounts of British post war climbing, detailing the exploits & memorable climbs of the inimitable working class hard man of the crags."
