From Ken Crocket, author of ‘Ben Nevis: Britain’s Highest Mountain’, comes the full story of the dawning of mountaineering in Scotland. It will shock many to discover that within a few years, Victorian climbers brought climbing in Scotland to technical levels not surpassed until the 1940s. The book breaks new ground as the comprehensive record of these early pioneers, when almost every climb was new and falls could be fatal. Covering the time leading up to World War I and with nearly 70 photographs from the era, many published for the first time, characters big and small are described alongside their deeds on the Scottish mountains.
