A Climber's Life

In 1985 Chris Bonington crowned an already distinguished mountaineering carer by reaching the summit of Everest at the age of fifty - an achievement which won him enormous popular acclaim and affection.

This volume chronicles his four expeditions from the world's highest peak from early attempts of the huge South-West Face. through to eventual success in 1975, moving in 1982 to the tragic North-East Ridge Trip, and culminating in the very successful Norwegian expedition of 1985. In THE EVEREST YEARS he tells of his fascination with the highest point of each and why it meant so much to him finally to stand there himself.

THE EVEREST YEARS is at once a mirror of evolving climbing taste and practice over the fifteen year period and a celebration of mountaineering at is most exacting and rewarding limites.
