A compilation of accounts written by members of the British Mountain Guides, including John Barry, Adrian Burgess, Rob Collister, Alan Hinkes, Martin Moran, Chris Parkin, Andy Perkins, Mike Pescod, Mark Seaton, Victor Saunders, and many others. Documenting both personal climbing and mountaineering adventures, as well as those shared with clients, the stories in this book represent the diversity of the mountain activities on which these professionals thrive: from first ascents on British winter cliffs to thought-provoking ascents of north faces in the Alps; and from the big walls of Yosemite and Patagonia to endurance when facing the challenges of the high Himalaya. These fascinating accounts give an insight into the climbing adventures that contribute to every guide's experience, and explore the difficulties that even some of the world's most experienced mountaineers encounter when making decisions in the mountains. They give a unique perspective on what motivates and drives climbers; where they find fulfilment and reward and, at the same time, how they deal with failure.
