Bonington's my hero. Got to meet him long ago, after he returned from the successful Everest expedition. What a good guy.

He was one of my hero's in High School during the seventies. I know I have his book stashed away. A very bold climber for his time for what I remember. One of the biggest names of his time.

Sir C.B. was also a hero of mine in the seventies. Incredible that at 80 he is still climbing, fantastic Sir.
