I was quite surprised to enjoy the section where the author talks about his career in the coal mines, as it's not something I ever read about, but it was interesting and well written. You can imagine why he was then attracted by the clean air and bright scenery of the mountains after so many grim days down the pit. I have great admiration for those who do hard, filthy and dangerous work like that.

The climbing parts of the book are fascinating. I've never went up more than a hill but I like to read about others adventures and imagine myself experiencing it. Some of these expeditions though, you really don't want to be on. Wish I could be more specific but I no longer own the book and can't find my review notes so I'm sorry that this review is so vague about the climbing part!

Good read for mountain fans.
