Product description

Review

BRILLIANT! Honest, gritty and remarkable."" - Sir Chris Bonington, mountaineer and author

""Andrew Lock has written a superb and very honest account of climbing all the 8000-metre summits and the connection he made with the Himalayan mountains, the Himalayan people and the Himalayan climbers he met along the way. In this book you will discover how, time and time again, a man can draw on his inner strength and also that he does not suffer fools gladly."" - Doug Scott, mountaineer and author

""The book reveals his respect for the process, reverence for the mountains and connection to the people who live in some of the most challenging terrains in the world."" - Sydney Morning Herald

""Filled with humour, drama and some sadness, it's a must-read."" - Outdoor --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Andrew Lock is the most accomplished high-altitude mountaineer in Australian history. He is the only Australian, the first person in the Commonwealth, and just the 18th man in the world to climb all fourteen of the world's 8000-metre mountains. His achievements encompass eighteen summits of those 8000-metre peaks, including Mt Everest (twice) more than four times that of any other Australian, placing him in a select group of the world's best alpinists. Additionally, Andrew accomplished the first Australian ascent of six of those mountains, a record that can never be broken. Andrew Lock is a professional motivational and keynote speaker. He can be found at www.andrew-lock.com. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
