A sneak peek inside Charles Sherwood's Seven Climbs
- Tuesday 31 March 2020
Which are the world's greatest climbs? Veteran mountaineer Charles Sherwood is on a mission, not in search of the traditional 'seven summits' but to seek out the most enjoyable climbs on each continent, and in the company of many of the climbing world's best known characters, including Andy Kirkpatrick, Mark Seaton and Stephen Venables. But to what criteria do you measure the best climbs? Rather than the determining factor being height alone, Charles considers the challenge and the variety of the climb and its beauty and heritage. Taking him to the Alps, the Himalaya, the Andes, Kenya, New Zealand and South Georgia, even the most casual reader will note that the author's quest 'is little more than a delightful ruse for having a very good time'.
