"This is a superb collection of some of the best mountain and adventure writing of the century." - Michael Kennedy, Editor, Climbing Magazine

Everest and K2 - Two of the most feared and respected peaks in the world. High offers a unique perspective on climbing these two peaks, from early exploration disasters, to the modern tragedies.

With writing from Matt Dickinson, Chris Bonington, David Roberts and others, these stories remind us, in vivid accounts why Everest and K2 are among the world's most dangerous places, yet why the world's best climbers can't stay away from them.

High is an adventure audiobook at its most compelling.

I felt cold just listening to it
