The LSCC pushed the boundaries for women climbers with the first woman Munroist, the first women's expedition to the Himalaya and the first women's expedition to Greenland. This is therefore a story full of interesting characters, willing to challenge the conventions of their day to discover the adventures of mountaineering; from classic summer and winter expeditions in Scotland to exploration among the greater ranges. Hardback with 96 contemporary black & white and 20 colour photographs; 176 pages.

Profits from our guidebooks go to the Scottish Mountaineering Trust which is a Scottish-registered charity. Purchasing an SMC publication therefore helps the Scottish mountain environment.
