Detailed Product Description
London, 1969,  Travel Book Club edition. 155 pp, 31 b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be worn, book is fine. Near Fine to Fine condition.

An overland, 4-man expedition drove 6000 miles from Scotland to Nuristan in Afghanistan, to climb in the Hindu Kush. They made the second ascent of Koh-i-Krebek, 20,500', by a new route to the south. They also made the first ascents of nine other peaks, and named a dozen more.  
 
The book , which is dedicated to the Corriemulzie Mountaineering Club, is the edited version of Philip Tranter's on-the-spot diary of his expedition, in company with three friends, Will Fraser, Gavin Johnstone and John Wedderburn to the Hinu Kush, the great mountain range running westwards from the remote regions where the Himalaya and the Karakorum meet the Pamir. Philip Tranter was killed in a motor accident in France on 19th August 1966 and his father, Nigel Tranter, edited his dairy of the expedition, photographs, maps and sketch-plans into book form. DJ, Very Good or Fine.
