Over the course of two years a number of British Mountain Guides have been involved in writing climbing and mountaineering stories which have now been collected together in A Passion for Mountains. If you only buy this book for the wonderful article by the late lamented Chris Dale, you will not be disappointed - but, in truth, there is a wealth of great stuff in here.

Documenting both personal climbing and mountaineering adventures as well as those shared with their clients, these stories represent the diversity of the mountain activities these mountain professionals thrive on. From first ascents on British winter cliffs to thought-provoking ascents of north faces in the European Alps, and from the big walls of Yosemite and Patagonia to endurance when facing the challenges of the high Himalaya.

This fascinating account of mountaineering gives an insight into the climbing adventures that contribute to every guide™s experience, and explores the difficulties that even some of the world™s most experienced mountaineers encounter when making decisions in the mountains. It gives a unique perspective into what motivates and drives climbers; where they find fulfilment and reward and at the same time how they deal with failure.

This is the first book of its kind that has brought together thirty previously unpublished stories all written by members of the British Mountain Guides. The book is fully illustrated and has the support of the IFMGA, which is the international body which governs all mountain guide associations around the world.
