Also throughout his life he has written evocatively and entertainingly about his experiences - early outings in the Lakes, surveying in South Georgia, climbing in the Alps, leading young and old parties in the wilds of Lesotho, a classic canoeing trip of 500 miles through the North West Territories, mountain rescue in the Lakes. The author was involved in outdoor education for many years and his radical views upon the need for a simple approach and for an emphasis on having fun are clearly argued. Last he writes sympathetic and illuminating portraits of friends made during his life in the mountains.
