Pat Falvey, who runs an adventure travel company from Macgillycuddy’s Reeks in Kerry, has made many high-altitude ascents around the world. He is the only Irish person to complete the Seven Summits, not once but twice, and he has climbed Everest from both north and south. This new, lavishly-illustrated, book describes his climbs on the major peaks of the world – Ama Dablam, Everest, McKinley, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Aconcagua, Cho Oyu, Vinson, and others. Pat reveals his motives and the dangers and joys at the limits of physical and mental challenges. Together the superb photographs and honest narrative recreate the ordeals, terrible beauty, and hardships of the mountains and give a unique insight into this exceptional high-altitude mountaineer and expedition leader.
