Detailed Product Description

London, 1969, 3rd UK printing. 208 pp, 40 b/w photos. Hardcover with chipped dust jacket and former owner's gift inscription on FEP. Very Good.

Chris' first book: the first British ascent of the Eiger Nordwand with Harlin and Haston, and the Annapurna South Face expedition.

Chris Bonington captures the highlights of his formative years of climbing from when he started as a London schoolboy at the age of sixteen to the first major expedition he led to climb the huge South Face of Annapurna in 1970 – at the time probably the hardest big face in the Himalayas.

He covers his discovery of rock climbing with the basic gear of the fifties, early forays into Scotland, then on to the Alps with his attempts and final success to be first Briton to climb the notorious North Wall of the Eiger and make the first ascent of The Central Pillar of Freney on the South side of Mont Blanc.

He tells of some of the great characters of British mountaineering –Hamish MacInnes, Don Whillans, Tom Patey and many more. He describes his early Himalayan climbs to Annapurna II and Nuptse in the early sixties when Nepal was still undeveloped and goes on his adventures as a photo journalist culminating in the first ever descent of the Blue Nile.
