Product Description
 
VINTAGE VOYAGES- A world of journeys, from the tallest mountains to the depths of the mind

Led by the reliably under-insightful Binder, a team of seven British men including Dr Prone (constantly ill); Jungle the route finder (constantly lost), Constant the diplomat (constantly arguing) and 3,000 Yogistani porters, set out to conquer the highest peak in the Himalayas.

An outrageously funny spoof about the ascent of a 40,000-and-a-half-foot peak, The Ascent of Rum Doodle has been a cult favourite since its publication in 1956.VINTAGE VOYAGES- A world of journeys, from the tallest mountains to the depths of the mind
