This is an auction for IN MONTE VISO'S HORIZON: CLIMBING ALL THE ALPINE 4000m PEAKS by Will McLewin.

Amazon.com reviews:

"Will McLewin (born 1940) is a British mountaineer who has climbed, without guides, the Alpine 4000 metre peaks. His narrative centres on the essential character of the climbs and on events on the day."

"I first read about Monte Viso in 1999 in Will McLewin’s classic book describing how every one of the Alps 4000m peaks could be seen from its summit. Three days later and there it was, standing like an isolated church tower nearly 100km south of us. It stands 500m clear of any other mountains nearby and is one of the few “must do” peaks I’ve ever had."

"Will McLewin writes well in an easy laconic manner. His stories of the ascents of the various 4000 m peaks are always interesting and to me as an amateur mountaineer, inspiring. I think McLewin could have fleshed out a bit the discussion sections and amplified his views on such subjects as to why he climbed alone and always bivouaced rather than stay in huts as these brief asides are really excellent. I would also have liked to have known more of his background and motivation. Good photos and amusing descriptions make this a must have for Alpine mountaineers."
