It’s been three years in the making, but at last I can announce the release of my first full-length book, Seven Steps from Snowdon to Everest, about my journey from hill walker to Everest climber.

Seven Steps from Snowdon to Everest is available now in ebook or paperback format. You can read various extracts and blog posts about it over on my blog, or click on the Preview link above to read an extract from the ebook on Amazon.

About this book

As he teetered on a narrow rock ledge a yak’s bellow short of the stratosphere, with a rubber mask strapped to his face, a pair of mittens the size of a sealion’s flippers, and a drop of two kilometres below him, it’s fair to say Mark Horrell wasn’t entirely happy with the situation he found himself in.

He had been an ordinary hiker who had only read books about mountaineering. When he signed up for an organised trek in Nepal with a group of elderly ladies, little did he know that ten years later he would be attempting to climb the world’s highest mountain.

But as he travelled across the Himalayas, Andes, Alps and East Africa, following in the footsteps of the pioneers, he dreamed up a seven-point plan to gain the skills and experience which could turn a wild idea into reality.

Funny, incisive and heartfelt, his journey provides a refreshingly honest portrait of the joys and torments of a modern-day Everest climber.

Praise from readers

Brilliant and inspiring … it shows what can be achieved if you have a dream and are prepared to work hard towards that end. A privilege to have read his book.

This is definitely one of the most inspiring mountaineering books that I have ever read.

I absolutely loved this book … took me to heights I will never see myself but am very content to read about through the author’s wonderful way of writing.

Read it, and be amused and inspired.

Funny (with a very British kind of humour) and serious and deep at the same time.

Imagine Bill Bryson taking up mountaineering and it will give you a small taste of what to expect … made me laugh out loud on numerous occasions.

Thoroughly enjoyable, enhanced by the author’s sense of humor, his honesty, and his detailed descriptions of the terrain, scenery, and companions.
