Published by Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1974, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine.   The first ascent of the Great Prow of Roraima (on the borders of Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil) by MacInnes, Mo Anthoine, Joe Brown and Don Whillans in November 1973.  The 9000 foot high plateau was made famous as the inspiration for Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. The climb turned out to be steeper and more technical than expected, with the team also having to contend with stinging scorpions, biting insects, thorny plants and continuous wet and muddy conditions. An unusual and well-written expedition book.
