Jim Wilson has been climbing since 1978 and considers himself an experienced mountaineer but not an expert. He has enough skills to climb at high altitude but the stories are more about the journey and not the technical aspects. From being a Munro climber in Scotland he went on to climb a 20,000 foot mountain in Nepal – the trip of a lifetime! But he kept going back!
This is a fairly laid back account of trekking and climbing big mountains including being on the highest of them all, Everest. It is a great introduction to all the highs and lows of trekking in some remote areas, often humorous but sometimes facing really difficult situations.
This is the story of four adventures in Nepal and Tibet.
