The Ascent of Rum Doodle

W.E. Bowman


‘To climb Mont Blanc is one thing; to climb Rum Doodle is quite another.’
It’s a testament to Bowman’s superb writing skills that his parody of the mountaineering books of his time enraged the climbing community, in part because readers believed it to be a true account.  Not only did he admit that he had climbed the wrong mountain and had to suffer the indignity of witnessing his porters reaching the summit of the mountain which his team had intended to conquer.
