On Thin Ice : tales of a tax man armed with Ice Axes

Just finished reading On Thin Ice by Mick Fowler. If you don't get excited by the thought of climbing vertical ice, its still a worthwhile read as a travel book where there happens to be scary climbing going on and a few things that go wrong, some funny, one very much not.

In the mid 90's I meet Mick a few times, once when I arranged for him to give a lecture at the University in Aberystwyth. Just a really easy guy to get on with and arrange the lecture. The lecture was, of course, inspiring.

Google suggests he is doing a few lectures at the moment such as in Bristol.
