Detailed Product Description

London/Seattle, Baton Wicks/The Mountaineers, 2000. 896 pp, b/w photos. New hardcover with dust jacket - with a small remainder mark on bottom edge.

Frank Smythe was one of the most prolific climbers and authors of the 30's. Here are six of his best books: Camp Six, Climbs and Ski Runs, Kamet Conquered, Kanchenjunga Adventure, Valley of Flowers and Mountaineering Holiday. 

The Smythe Omnibus brings together six works by accomplished mountaineer Frank Smythe. Climbs and Ski Runs depicts Smythe’s early climbs in the Alps, including his ascent of the Brenva face of Mont Blanc with Graham Brown. Kanchenjunga Adventure recounts firsthand the unsuccessful 1930 expedition to that peak, during which two climbers died.

Kamet Conquered describes Smythe’s pioneering ascent of 25,447-foot Kamet, as well as previous tries. Camp 6 details the 1933 attempt on Everest, when Smythe climbed to the highest point ever reached at that time. Valley of Flowers follows more adventures in the Garhwal Himalaya and Bhyundar Valley. Mountaineering Holiday describes a fine alpine season during the last days of peacetime, in the summer of 1939.
