Description - Flame Of Adventure by Simon Yates

Simon Yates, author of Against The Wall, takes us back to his early years as a climber the escapades and excitement of a young life lived on the edge and for the moment, when experience was all important and dramatic achievements and failures came as naturally as the hair raising risks themselves. mountaineering travelogue of dazzling variety, The Flame of Adventure moves from the camaraderie of deprived Russian climbers in the little known peaks in the Tien Shan to the awesome rumbustious motorbike ride across Asia to hitchhiking across Australia with a psychotic lorry driver. We meet a remarkable gallery of climbers, from Doug Scott to Joe Simpson, and, when not exploring high mountains, we enter the bizarre world of rope access workers, mavericks balancing high above building sites on the London skyline.
