9780099530381: The Ascent of Rum Doodle (Vintage Classics)
Led by the reliably underinsightful Binder, a team of seven British men—including Dr. Prone (constantly ill), Jungle the route-finder (constantly lost), Constant the diplomat (constantly arguing), and 3,000 Yogistani porters—set out to conquer the highest peak in the Himalayas. Though a parody, it has become one of the most famous and celebrated books of mountaineering literature.

From the Publisher:
First published in 1956, The Ascent of Rum Doodle quickly became a mountaineering classic. As an outrageously funny spoof about the ascent of a 40,000-and-a-half-foot peak, many thought it was inspired by the 1953 conquest of Everest. But Bowman has drawn on the flavor and tone of earlier adventures, of Bill Tilman and his 1937 account of the Nandi Devi expedition. The book’s central and unforgettable character, Binder, is one of the finest creations in comic literature. With an Introduction by Bill Bryson.
