A Crawl Down The Ogre

Doug Scott CBE and that other mountaineering icon, Chris Bonington, made the first ascent of The Ogre [Baintha Brakk 7285m] in the Karakoram. Their climb extended the boundaries of what had been achieved before at that altitude. But it was the subsequent descent from the summit in the dark, turning a catalogue of disasters that would have defeated most people, into an epic which has since entered mountaineering folklore.

With the aid of newly discovered photographs and diaries, legendary mountaineer, Doug Scott will be telling a thrilling tale of hard climbing, team work and survival against all odds, in his famously laconic and humorous style.
