Reviews

One of Britain's finest mountaineers, One Man’s Everest is Kenton Cool at his best: honest and true, enthusiastic and exuberant. He brings these marvellous mountaineering stories to life as he does in his captivating lectures.

Doug Scott

Eleven times on the Everest summit. Kenton Cool is without doubt the most formidable mountaineer of his generation.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

I have seen a compassionate and gentle side to Kenton that others with equal drive and commitment don’t have. His record in the world’s mighty mountains is remarkable. I hope he is admired as much for the man he is, as his achievements.

His Royal Highness Prince Jigyel Ugyen Wangchuck, First Crown Prince of Bhutan

I’ve watched Kenton’s development over the last decade into one of the world’s pre-eminent climbers. The time he has spent at 8000m is almost unparalleled, and his ability to succeed in the Death Zone where others fail stands testament to his ability as a mountaineer as well as his personal drive and ambition.

Sir Chris Bonington

One Man’s Everest is told with great honesty. It is a tale of immense enthusiasm and remarkable determination. The writing makes you feel as if you are eating your way through a stick of Blackpool rock – every page has Kenton Cool written right through it.
