Synopsis

This is the boxed set of two classic and perennial mountaineering autobiographies - the picture stories of the climbs of our two greatest mountaineers who each played a part in some of the greatest climbs of the 20th Century: Alpine ventures; big rock walls in the Dolomites, Patagonia, Yosemite and Baffin Island; the conquest of the great Himalayan walls of Annapurna and Everest.Scott and Bonington are of different generations - Bonington with his military background in the last days of conscription and Empire, and one of the last of the old-style big expedition leaders; Scott a hippie, flower-power anarchist wedded to the mores of the 60s and 70s. In Bonington's 1975 Everest Expedition, Doug Scott (and Dougal Haston) shot to fame by completing the first ascent of the South-West Face of Everest - the first Britons to achieve this.Later they both played a full part in the emerging faster lightweight styles on other 8000m peaks - K2, Broad Peak, Kangchenjunga, Shisha Pangma, and also smaller summits - Kongur, Changabang, Menlungste, Shivling.These landmark mountaineering events and many more are fully examined (with attendant commentaries) in these magnificent picture autobiographies - both being outstanding photographers.

They illustrate the splendour of the approach, the interesting communities and characters met 'en route' and, once at the mountain, the awesome spectacle and the real nitty-gritty of big time mountaineering.
