Snowshoes and Shipton: Climbing Muztag Ata in the Chinese Pamirs

The great mountain explorer Eric Shipton failed to reach the summit of Muztag Ata, vomited from exhaustion on the way down and arrived back with frostbite.

About Mark Horrell

For five years I have been writing what has been described as one of the most credible Everest opinion blogs out there. I write about trekking and mountaineering from the often silent perspective of the commercial client.

For over a decade I have been exploring the world’s greater mountain ranges and keeping a diary of my travels. As a writer I strive to do for mountain history what Bill Bryson did for long-distance hiking.

Several of my expedition diaries are available as quick reads from the major online bookstores. My first full-length book, Seven Steps from Snowdon to Everest, about my ten-year journey from hill walker to Everest climber, will be published in December 2015 and is available now to pre-order.

My favourite mountaineering book is The Ascent of Rum Doodle by W.E. Bowman.
