Mummery, an expert rock and alpine climber, made many important climbs in the Mont Blanc region. Here are his climbs of the Matterhorn, Aiguille des Charmoz, Grépon, Dent du Requin, Aiguille du Plan, Aiguille Verte, Dych Tau, in the Caucasus, and more. Mummery disappeared while leading an expedition to Nanga Parbat in 1895. This second edition is the first to include a new introduction by Mummery’s widow containing extracts from four of Mummery’s last letters. A classic.
