High Endeavours : The Life and Legend of Robin Smith Paperback



Robin Smith was one of the most legendary climbers ever to have tackled a mountain.

This definitive biography draws on contributions from people who knew this charismatic and complex young man, as well as diary extracts from Smith himself.

As Smith was a friend and inspiration to many climbers worldwide, including fellow Scot Dougal Haston, High Endeavours is a fitting and long-overdue tribute to one of Britain's most revered mountaineers, and one of the finest books ever written on the allure of the mountainside.
