A coming of age story of high adventure, youthful insecurity and immature love. The situations might be extreme, but the deeper issues will be familiar to many. He seeks manhood in the mountains, yet he believes he will only truly gain it by losing something. Harrowing escapades in Scotland, the Alps and Alaska are interspersed with excruciating sexual encounters and unsettling hitch hiking rides. When the mountains fail him, he seeks meaning with a religious cult in Colorado. Eventually he succeeds in his quest, only to find that he's lost more than he bargained for. Steve Bell went on to pioneer the concept of commercial high altitude expeditions in the UK and became the first Briton to guide clients to the summit of Mount Everest. In 1995 he formed Jagged Globe and went on to lead expeditions to all seven summits.
