Published by Kaye & Ward, London, 1974, 1st UK Edition, D/w (3 cm tear at bottom of front flap), V.G.   Doug Scott’s book, still one of the best on big wall climbing and technique, filled a significant gap in mountain literature, namely a world history of big wall climbing.  From his own experience on big rock faces in the Tibesti Mountains, Baffin Island, Yosemite, Norway, the Pyrenees, the Dolomites, Mont Blanc and Everest, Scott covers not only the history of the pioneers who developed big walls worldwide but also the development of the techniques needed to climb them.
