From Ken Crocket, author of Ben Nevis - Britain's Highest Mountain, comes the full story of the dawning of mountaineering in Scotland. It will shock many to discover that within a few years, Victorian climbers brought climbing in Scotland to technical levels not surpassed until the 1940s. The book breaks new ground as the comprehensive record of these early pioneers, when almost every climb was new and falls could be fatal. Covering the time leading up to World War I and with nearly 70 illustrations from the era, many published for the first time, characters big and small are described alongside their deeds on the Scottish mountains.Ken began exploring the Scottish mountains over 50 years ago and wrote his first climbing guidebook in 1975. He is the author of several climbing guides including Glen Coe, and has contributed to others. He has numerous first ascents, summer and winter, and his natural curiosity led him to the history of the sport. This latest book was in part written to fill the need for a comprehensive and accurate account of mountaineering in Scotland, and is the first volume in a planned three-volume set.
