by: David Wynne Jones "4000m Peaks of the Alps"
This is the engrossing story of the seasons the
author spent climbing 4000m mountains in
the different regions of the Alps. It is also
about the people with whom he
climbed who found time out of their day-to-day
routine for this extraordinary
activity. He explains the reason for this
fascination which resulted in their
spending decades pursuing their climbing
The words and photos both encapsulate the
alpine experience in all its beauty and
suffering, pain and exhilaration,
danger and humour which is shared with each
climbing partner and open to anyone
with the same commitment. The author believes
that climbing all the 4000m
mountains is a realistic and achievable
objective that will take mountaineers
into much wild and beautiful terrain. These are
not just snow plods: every
mountain has a worthwhile route on it and even
those with long glacier
approaches can become superb ascents and
descents on ski in an alpine spring.
The many photos taken over the years were a
reminder of details that had escaped notice in
the journals kept at the time.
These numerous stunning and inspiring
photographs tell their own story and
enrich the authorís account. The book is
dedicated to all his climbing partners
who made the completion of the quest possible.
