'A Passion for Mountains' presents a compilation of stories written by members of the British Mountain Guides.

Documenting both personal climbing and mountaineering adventures as well as those shared with clients, the stories in this book represent the diversity of the mountain activities these professionals thrive on: from first ascents on British winter cliffs to thought-provoking ascents of north faces in the European Alps, and from the big walls of Yosemite and Patagonia to endurance when facing the challenges of the high Himalaya.

This fascinating account of mountaineering gives an insight into the climbing adventures that contribute to every Guide's experience, and explores the difficulties that even some of the world's most experienced mountaineers encounter when making decisions in the mountains.

It gives us a unique perspective into what motivates and drives climbers; where they find fulfilment and reward and at the same time how they deal with failure.
