I've liked this author's previous books--most of which centers around his needing to be helped off high places. Now, he writes yet another and this time I'm a bit less sympathetic. How many times do you need rescuing to be considered a poor climber, or, even worse, a danger to other climbers? That Venables' tone towards very people who saved him in this book is so ungallant, only adds to the contempt one feels towards him by the end of this sad tale. I'd bypass this book for more heroic climbing tales.
