climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Jerry Moffatt - Revelations
Moffatt and Grimes have done climbing history a service in setting down the story of UK climbing in the “dole era” of the 1980s — a story that was quickly becoming forgotten. GRAND PRIZE WINNER - BANFF MOUNTAIN BOOK FESTIVAL 2009

Beyond the Mountain
Steve House lets nothing get in the way of his mountaineering, and he deserves his position as one of the foremost extreme alpinists in the world. Readers of `Beyond The Mountain' will be awestruck by his commentaries on daring and difficult exploits with routes up demanding mountains in various parts of the globe.

Savage Arena
Savage Arena is more than a posthumous companion reader to Boardman's two books (The Shining Mountain and Sacred Summits); it is the final work of a trilogy in which each man mirrored the growth of the other and came of age in big-time British mountaineering.”

Nanda Devi: The Tragic Expedition
"This is a book that tells the story of a harrowing and complex series of events that occurred on Nanda Devi in 1976; an expedition conceived by a father and his daughter, whose name was given in honour of the mountain: Nanda Devi Unsoeld"

Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate
"The 1978 Austrian expedition (…) wanted to achieve the first Austrian ascent and at the same time (if possible) achieve the first ascent without the use of breathing apparatus. They succeeded in both objectives."

The Shishapangma Expedition
"The late Alex Maclntyre and Doug Scott's account of their expedition to climb the 8012-meter Shishapangma by its unexplored southwest face is both fascinating and unusual—in large part because all six of the team members contribute to the narrative. As a result, the strengths, the weaknesses, the humor, the bickering and backbiting are all there."

The Challenge
"(…) it's an excellent adventure story, which even granny would enjoy. It has excitement, danger, sex, and a hero who tears himself away from his wife and home in order to try something new on a big mountain."

Trango:
The Nameless Tower

"As an expedition book, it is something entirely different. It is teeming with anecdotes and funny stories, as refreshing as a mountain stream in contrast to the usual treadmill of endeavour and heroics performed by supermen at high altitude."

The Shining Mountain
“It is very good—an exciting tale well told, giving a real insight into what it is like out at the front. This was one of the hardest routes so far tackled among big mountains. The resulting gripping story is a must for the mountaineer's bookshelf, if indeed he has any room remaining on it.”

Thin Air: Encounters
in the Himalayas

"It is a remarkable book, full of thoughts and reflection yet never indulging in excessive introspection, full of strong feeling yet never sentimental. There are some fascinating portraits of contemporary climbers."

The Endless Knot
"This is not so much a mountaineering book as a love story. A story of the love between a man and a woman and their passion for mountains. A soliloquy rather than a narrative, a story of death and disaster with few heroes."

The Burgess Book of Lies
“Telling stories to friends around campfires, in bars or in a crowded basecamp tent has never been difficult for either of us. We revel in the act of entertainment. ... We especially thank those who held regular jobs so that civilization, as we know it, didn't fall apart while we went climbing.(...)"

Chomolungma Sings the Blues
"In Chomolungma Sings the Blues, Ed Douglas, editor of Climber, a U.K. magazine, and The (British) Alpine Journal, recounts his experiences and observations on a trek through Nepal in 1995-'96. The main theme of this book (not always easy to decipher) is the degradation of Nepalese culture brought on by Western trekkers and climbers, of whom he does not have many nice things to say."

This Game of Ghosts
"The book is not so much about why we climb - Simpson can't answer that for himself, much less the rest of us - but why we take such risks for such fleeting rewards. Simpson's friends and acquaintances drop one by one throughout the book, each time making Simpson wonder why. The death toll includes not just his friends but his heroes too. Nobody seems immune..."

Mixed Emotions
"Mixed Emotions is the follow-up to Greg Child's autobiographical Thin Air (...) Greg Child is undoubtedly one of the most gifted climbing writers in the World today with a vivid and compelling prose style that frequently had me on the edge of my mountaineer's armchair..."
