    Before it's too late and our « old guard » ( myself included ) begins to blur in the time , I would like that some of you had the chance of getting into the Mountaineering Literature .

    That is why, I'm going to chose one of the most entrancing mountaineering books I've read recently, The shining Mountain by Peter Boardman .
    We have still plenty of enthusiasm for reading !!
    When I discover an exciting and poignantly book, I have the pressing need to share it with others :)

    What makes it outstanding is the brilliant writing of Peter Boardman : clear, emotional and meticously descriptive prose .

    Don't worry about certain Technicalities of climbing or mountaineering, so to speak, is more an introspective journey towards the Changabang's summit . He talk us about challenges, suffering, fears or funny moments and also about interpersonal dynamics between he and Tasker throughout their project, that is, their own views on climbing and reasons behind what they do.

    In any case, any doubt I will try to solve it .
    Trust me, really you will be able feel yourself like the third partner on the rope !!

    Today, it's the international day of the mountains, so I'm going to remember this shining faraway mountain called Changabang and the achievement/challenge of the West Face in the words of Peter Boardman .

    I have added it to my kindle on your great recommendation. Pretty soon I'll start reading it, after I finish one or two others. :)

    That's great !! I think, till February we will be able to discuss about this book :)
    Peder, I didn't think that you would return :eek: I am really grateful, because you always get involved and you do utmost for the sake of this forum !!

    Picking up the thread, « Someone » talked to me about this mountain and it was inevitable write a brief review, adding besides some quotes - as a kind of thank-you at distance- for suggesting me this so fascinating book !!


    Since a picture is worth a thousand words...The Yellow line is the West face Route of the Changabang . Peter Boardman would tell us...

    Enjoy the book/ bonne lecture !!
