Detailed Product Description
UK, 2020, 1st edition. 218 pp, 15 photos. New paperback.

Rob MacCallum is an all-round mountaineer a man for all seasons. This is his memoir of climbd in Scotland, Alps, Pyrenees, Andes,Patagonia,  Bugaboos, Canadian Rockies, Switzerland, Peru, Bolivia,

His accounts of mountaineering in Scotland and overseas capture his enthusiasm, passion, commitment and sense of adventure, each journey an almost spiritual engagement with the mountain environment; the vision and diversity of expeditions limitless. By using remote bothies (huts), high camps, snow caves and open bivouacs he is very much at home among the mountains.

He also illustrates how mountaineering can sometimes be a risky business, demonstrating an uncanny capacity to warn of potentially threatening events. Its all there: a collection of epic accounts, from being caught in an avalanche, a cliff self-rescue and crevasse fall, to cornice collapse and hypothermia. Luck and fate are never far from the action.

Some anecdotal accounts allow us to glimpse his sense of humor in describing some of the funny and unusual events encountered with people while in the mountains. After all, its people that make mountaineering what it is.

The lasting legacy has to be one of inspiration. As Rob says, Be inspired and live the dream.
