From Hellifield to the Himalaya


'The black clouds, which had been knocking hell out of my emotions the previous day, had vanished. I was upbeat about what lay ahead, proof if any was needed that ignorance can be bliss. At last, I could look forward to seeingmy goal, Brumkhangse...

So, what do you do when you've 'bagged' all 282 Scottish Munros and sampled the delights of Norway's remote Lyngen Alps and Switzerland's Valais Alps. Obviously, you head for the Himalaya in spite of the fact it was an area you vowed never to visit.

Sue Pugh never set out to conquer the great outdoors but, from enjoying strolls in her native Yorkshire, she progressed to winter mountaineering and evermore challenging adventures. In 2018, she and her husband, Dave, together with a group of loyal friends and a highly respected mountain guide, set off to scale the heights in a rarely visited area of Sikkim in the Indian Himalaya. You'll also learn why a lipstick is essential on the Matterhorn, a use for a snowball that you've never even dreamed of, and, how to skinny dip in theScottish mountains... Poor old Dave was in a real quandary until I asked why he was hesitating; get your kit off, for goodness sake!

If you want to know the best techniques for belaying or how to tie knots, this book isn't for you. But if you want to experience the excitement, humour, joy - and sometimes sadness - of taking on a great life challenge, then join Sue.
