Dougal Haston, "enfant terrible" of his generation of Scottish climbers, graduated from Glencoe, Ben Nevis and prison to epic first ascents on the Eiger, Annapurna and Everest in a career cut short when, in 1977, aged only 36, he died meaninglessly, ingloriously -- in an avalanche while on a skiing day trip.
