About the book:

A collection of stories about outstanding woman climbers including the first ladies' success on Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. It then moves on to describe Junko Tabei's courage in conquering Everest and relives some of the greatest climbs in the Himalayas, the Andes, the Alps, Yosemite National Park, Russia and Australia. From Lucy Walker's confrontation with male-dominated social attitudes to Catherine Destivelle's modern world of the free rock climber, it examines in depth the lives of personalities who have dispelled the myth that climbing should be the domain only of men. The late Bill Peascod was vice president of the British Mountaineering Council and of the Fell and Rock Climbing Club. Forty years after first climbing the challenging "Eagle Front" near Buttermere, he encountered it again with Chris Bonington during the filming of the award-winning television series "Lakeland Rock".
