I enjoyed the book especially as Shipton and Tilman are among the adventurers I most admire. However, the author has spoilt the text by the frequent inclusion of highfaluting words eg impaludistic when alternatives would still give the same meaning. Perhaps, I am not as erudite as Jim Perrin. I think his book on Don Whillans ' The Villain' was much better written.
