HASH(0x9f51fee8) out of 5 stars A Remarkable View From A Spectacular Climber 17 Dec. 2004
By Utku Kaynar - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's a complete story of Bonington's first years, beginning from novice winters in Scotland to the first English ascent of Eiger.

You can see the whole evolution and development through the book, and the classical dilemma between career and climbing, which is solved by the choice of the latter.

If you are interested in being a climber/mountaineer, this is a remarkable biography.
