Detailed Product Description
London, 1973, 1st UK edition, second impression. 168 pp, 20 b/w photos, index. Original aqua cloth hardcover with gold lettering on spine and dust jacket. Fine condition.

Autobiography of the legendary Scottish climber, who was the first Briton to summit Everest.

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.
