A good read, although now feels dated in parts- sometimes seems a very historical piece. If you enjoy Newby's other works this will also deliver.

I like books about travels and amusing characters. Was well written and the descriptions were thought provoking. A very interesting read..

A classic mountain tale that is the forerunner of many modern climbing and travel books. Amusing and whimsical. Highly recommended

What a fantastic tale from days gone by, how these chaps didn't die is a miracle! Shame that I couldn't follow in Newby's footsteps.

Typical example of British adventurism with minimal practice or experience. A bit like rowing the Atlantic or swimming the Channel.

A real essential for both lovers of travel writing and lovers of adventure. One of those books that is a must-have in any library.

I loved this book, from the first page which gets you smiling at the clever turns of phrase - through to the heroic climb itself.

A wonderful, joyful and slightly nerve shredding read about two woefully inexperienced climbers. Full of charm, wit and bravado.

A great travel book written in a time very different from today. Written with great humour this book will not disappoint.

A wonderful, diverting account full of humour and adventure. This book is a little gem and I would recommend it highly.
