Hear Sir Chris Bonington's extraordinary story, read by Gordon Griffin. His memoir, Ascent, charts not only his many triumphs in the climbing world - such as the Eiger and the Himalayas - but also the struggles he has faced in his life bringing up a family and maintaining a successful and loving marriage over the decades of travelling the world to conquer mountains.

Fantastic account of a life lived
Chris Bonington is not only a brilliant climber , expedition leader and explorer but also a fantastic writer.
A true tale of life , love and loss .
Nobody could ever say Chris didn’t live to the full . A real kick up the backside for the negative.
