Everest - The First Ascent: The untold story of Griffith Pugh, the man who made it possible
Everest - The First Ascent: The untold story of Griffith Pugh, the man who made it possible
by Harriet Tuckey
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 13.60

4.0 out of 5 stars A different look at early altitude mountaineering, 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little up and down at first & not at all what I expected. Comes into it's own once the Everest expedition is over, well written and a big eye opener to those early days of altitude mountaineering.

Cheap, strong and a little bigger than I expected. I was expecting something a little more 'micro' than these were.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced., 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure how long this stuff is supposed to last, one season and my pack is soaking up water, shrugged the rain off pretty well for most of year.
As with all these applications, they're very expensive, for what is essentially a bunch of PVAs and some other cheap chemicals in a nice 'small' spray bottle.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little more thought., 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rab Silk Liner Mummy - (Misc.)
Same quality as any other silk liner about, maybe the stitching is a little better & and it comes with a nice little RAB mesh bag. A hood at the top would improve things no end.
I have lots if RAB equipment which is very well thought out.
This is, well..... Just ok.

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice in my collection., 23 Feb 2014

Not bad, more of a coffee table book really, skirting around the basics.
What did I expect though in one book?


The Death and Life of Dith Pran
The Death and Life of Dith Pran
by Sydney H. Schanberg
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Cambodia, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing wrong with the book, albeit a little pricy for its very small size.
You could read it in one sitting if required, the point is put across though and more than worth reading if you have an interest in this terrible era of Cambodia's past.

I've bought far better, No wonder you get six, It takes two attempts to get straight.Each one only lasts a couple of weeks before peeling up, and that's under a case.

Everest: Trekking Routes in Nepal and Tibet: A Trekker's Guide (Cicerone Guide)
by Kev Reynolds
Edition: Flexibound

5.0 out of 5 stars Everest, A Trekkers Guide, 9 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Out of the three books I purchased for the subject I found this one to be the best for me, lots useful information, just enough colour pictures and plastic jacket to stop it getting dog eared on the trek.
Probably best suited to compliment you on a guided tour, or at a push independent trekking, we'll see soon.
Overall very good.Everest: A Trekker's Guide (Cicerone Guide)
