8000 metres: Climbing the World's highest mountains by Alan Hinkes
Alan Hinkes is the first Briton to climb the world’s highest mountains – the fourteen 8000m peaks, in whose ‘death zone’, human survival is measured in hours. Many have perished in the attempt. An accomplished author, photographer and filmmaker, inspirational speaker, environmentalist and experienced Mountain Guide, we're proud to say he is also a keen ambassador for mountain rescue in England and Wales.
This stunning large-format book captures Alan's experience of climbing all those fourteen peaks, capturing the beauty and majesty of the mountains alongside his minute-by-minute struggle to survive. He reflects on the Yorkshire childhood and first Alpine ascents, the life he has led and plans to lead, recalling the climbing companions he met along the way. If you love the mountains, you'll love this book.
