Solo mountaineering is Aat's spiritual journey. He explores the theme of "gaining mastery IN rather than OVER the mountain environment". Rejects notion "that a good mountaineering trip has to have close shaves and suffering to be successful." Quotes Vilhjalmur Stefansson: "ADVENTURE IS A SIGN OF INCOMPETENCE."
This author was born in The Netherlands in 1945 but grew up in Australia and New Zealand. Worked as a mountain guide in the 1960's and 70's. He is an academic at the Australian National University of Canberra with particular interest in Asian and Pacific studies.
