Detailed Product Description
New York, Sheridan House, 1992, 1st US edition. 143 pp, color and b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. 

Climbing and sailing in Greenland. A renowned mountaineer learns to sail and a world-famous sailor learns to climb in this splendid collaboration by the two British adventurers. Meeting on a TV show, climber Bonington (The Everest Years ) agreed to sailor Knox-Johnston's suggestion that they share their skills.

Following the course of famous sailing mountaineer H. W. Tilman, they set out from England in Knox-Johnston's ketch Suhaili for Greenland's east coast. A brutal 40-mile trek inland took them to their next goal, the Cathedral, an unscaled 7800-foot peak. After nearly 25 hours of climbing, the pair gave up; Bonington and another companion stayed for a futile second attempt that led to a hair-raising descent.

Back on Suhaili, the party encountered adverse winds off Iceland that delayed them for more than a week. In this engaging account of camaraderie and of a grand escapade, Bonington seems to have taken to sailing better than Knox-Johnston to climbing.
