Rate this:
A "wonderful" memoir about mountain climbing--and the risk, joy, and adventure of being alive (Chris Bonington).

Shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature

When poet Andrew Greig was asked by Scottish mountaineer Mal Duff to join his ascent of the Mustagh Tower in the Karakoram Himalayas, he had a poor head for heights and no climbing experience whatsoever. The result is this unique book.

Known for its candor and wit, and the beauty of its writing, Summit Fever is the story of a newcomer to mountain climbing facing a challenge beyond his expectations--"an excellent read, one of the best expedition books so far" ( Climber ).
