What the critics say

"A totally engaging and satisfying book on every level – as biography, memoir, travelogue and erudite meditation on the restlessness and indomitableness of the human spirit." - Caught by the River

"What emerges is a beautiful portrait of a trailblazing woman, up to now lost to history - but also a book about that eternal question: why do people climb mountains?" - Good Reads

"The resulting book is an entertaining and absorbing account of past and present relationships forged amid extreme physical endeavour." - The Times

"It’s a miracle he lived to tell this tale and Climbing Days is a wonderful achievement. I will be intrigued to see where he takes us next. " - Guardian
