Wainwright, is a witty send-up of a mountaineering book — complete with "Alpine Club" type characters, hair-breadth rescues and all the tensions and pompous tones of a Himalayan expedition. Join Scratch & Co. on their assault of the H.K.P. — a clearly undisguised Scafell Pike. Suitable for readers from eight to eighty.

SYNOPSIS / / Stanley Watson's 1935 movie High Hazard was Britain's first complete record of rock climbing. Although faced with scepticism and indifference, he created a picture that professional moviemen were forced to accept. Watson's groundbreaking filming techniques set the standard for which all subsequent mountaineering films had to follow.
