When will the rain ever end? At times, it is just a drizzle, and at times, it is a deluge. It is mostly dark and mostly dreary. At times, the thunder and lightning make my knees shake and my heart skip a beat. Why does it have to storm? Why do storms come when I least expect them? Why do they cause damage and devastation? Almighty God answers and says, “Without the storms of life, you will never appreciate the little things, the beautiful sunrises I have made just for you! You will forget how much I love you, and that I have made all things for your good. The storms of today are the sunrises of tomorrow!”

"Why do you climb?" The mountaineer has no answer to this question. The best things in the world cannot adequately be expressed in speech or print; they are part of the soul.' In Climbs and Ski Runs, Frank Smythe takes the reader on Alpine ski trips and Dolomite adventures, up first ascents in North Wales and on to the mighty Brenva Face of Mont Blanc. He places pebbles for runners, 'shoots' crevasses and is struck by lightning. And yet, all the while, he perfectly captures the moments that make climbing and mountaineering so special - moments that will resonate with anybody who has spent time in the hills. Frank Smythe was among the leading mountaineers of the early twentieth century and one of the finest climbing writers ever to put pen to paper. In Climbs and Ski Runs he documents his early forays into the mountains, giving a remarkable insight into that period of climbing and mountaineering. Yet it is not this that makes the book special. It is Smythe's ability to observe and recreate his surroundings and to write so compellingly about the climber's response to them, and to the moments of difficulty and danger, that brings Climbs and Ski Runs to life.
