Mountain Guru: The Life of Doug Scott by Catherine Moorehead

Mountain Guru: The Life of Doug Scott by Catherine Moorehead

  • 3300


Doug Scott was a legend among mountaineers. His expeditions, over five decades, are unparalleled achievements. This book describes the extraordinary drama of them all, including his famous 'epic' on The Ogre, one of the hardest peaks in the world to climb, his ascent of Kangchenjunga without supplementary oxygen and his ascent, with Dougal Haston, of Everest in 1975. Catherine Moorehead uncovers the elusive man behind the obsessive mountaineer, an infuriating monomaniac who took extraordinary risks yet developed a deep interest in Buddhism and inspired widespread affection.
