No goggles or glacier glasses, no hi-tech axes or day-glo Gore-Tex adorned Alpinists of the mid-19th century. From the 1850s to the early 20th century, the achievements of Irish mountaineers are largely obscured in British historical accounts. This book sets the record straight. Frank Nugent, mountaineer-explorer, reveals a significant Irish contribution beginning with the 'golden age of alpine mountaineering' when the first ascents of mountains like the Eiger and Weisshorn and the first traverse of the Matterhorn from Italy were by Irish climbers.
