Whether you think of it as a sport, way of life or fruitless activity, climbing mountains as a pass time was invented in Britain. In this book Simon Thompson steps back and explores the heritage that has brought us to where we are now.

It is a colourful journey, rich in head-strong characters, pursuits of science and religion, heroism and pig headed determination.

Have we really changed that much?
