About this product
- DescriptionThe untimely death of Dougal Haston in 1977 robbed climbing of one of its most charismatic, controversial and enigmatic figures.

Conr traces the career of a great climber from his native Scottish hills to his startling feats on Everest and the world's other great mountains.This definitive biography, which draws on never before seen diaries, explores the agonised development of Haston the man.
