Detailed Product Description
Seattle, 1997. 168 pp, color photos. New paperback with remainder mark on bottomedge.

A biography of the Scottish climber who climbed Everest SW Face, was on the Eiger Direct, Cerro Torre and Annapurna S Face.
  • Written with great intensity and climbing detail
  • Author of The Eiger and Eiger Direct
  • New introduction by Doug Scott

Dougal Haston captured the imagination of the world far beyond the climbing community. He was talented, handsome, egocentric, and obsessed with climbing. His climbing exploits became widely recognized after his ascent of the North Face of the Eiger - a world first. There followed many spectacular climbs. He put up new routes in many parts of the world, particularly in Scotland and the Alps and made a highly celebrated ascent of Mount Everest.

In High Places tells in compelling prose of Dougal Haston's love of mountains. His most famous climbs are recounted, and the writing is infused with a deep passion for adventures and challenge. It is a powerful and eye-opening portrait of the climber as a young man and essential reading for aspiring mountaineers.
