"The Ascent of Rum Doodle" by W.E. Bowman is one of the funniest books I've ever read. It's described as a comic classic and it truly is. The subject is the ascent of the highest mountain on earth. And it is silly and fun all the way up and all the way down.

A fun read for some light humour.

A hilarious account of a fictitious mountain climbing expedition. A classic and must read for anyone interested in climbing culture.
