"An exceptional book." - BOARDMAN TASKER PRIZE 2009 "Beyond the Mountain takes the road less travelled. House takes the same approach he advocates for in alpinism - that of innovation, boldness, honesty and simplicity and uses it to produce a story of lasting depth." - BANFF MOUNTAIN BOOK FESTIVAL 2009 "The rare climbing book that I felt compelled to read cover to cover in just a few sittings." - DOUGALD MACDONALD, UKCLIMBING.COM"
