    I had never heard of Jim Whittaker before but what an interesting and inspiring man, If only more people lived there lives like he seems to have lived his wouldn’t the world be a better place.

    Thank you for the Video. A very inspiring man, whose name is legendary in the climbing world. It made me go all goose pimply

    Just picked up a coppy of The West Ridge and I am into it about 50 pages. Quite a contrast to the nut farm Everest has become.

    Respect to the pioneers of adventure. Never been to Everest but I’ve heard about what’s happening there, so I hear what you’re saying Grant.
