Feeding the Rat: A Climber\'s Life on the Edge

    By

    Feeding the Rat is the story of an extraordinary man: climbing legend Mo Anthoine, who found his greatet joy in adventures that tested the far limits of human endurance. That passion for "feeding the rat" made him the unsung hero of dozens of horrifying epics in the mountains, including the famous ogre expedition that nearly killed Doug Scott and sir Chris Bonington. The book is also the story of the extraordinary friendship between Mo and adrenaline junky Al Alvarez - the distinguished poet, journalist and critic - whose deeply moving portrait of his longtim climbing partner is a classic of adventure literature.
