Longstaff was one of the great early Himalayan climber-explorers. His travels took him to the Caucasus (1903), Nanda Devi (1905), Trisul and Kamet (w/ Bruce and Mumm, 1907), Tibet (traveling partly w/ the Duke of Abruzzi, de Filippi, and Sella, 1909), Assiniboine (1910), Purcell Range (w/ Wheeler, Kain, Harman, 1910), Spitsbergen (w/ Odell, 1921, 1923), Everest (1922), Greenland (1928), and elsewhere. The 1907 first ascent of Trisul remained the highest peak climbed for 21 years. Longstaff was so well thought of he was even invited by Scott to go to the Antarctic, an offer he refused. A good read. Neate L48.
