"Douglas Keith Scott" Order of the British Empire/CBE, known as "Doug Scott" , is an English Mountaineering/mountaineer noted for the 1975 British Mount Everest Southwest Face expedition/first ascent of the south-west face of Mount Everest on 24 September 1975. Scott and Dougal Haston were the first Britons to climb Everest during this expedition (discounting British_Mount_Everest_Expedition_1924/Mallory and Irvine). In receiving one of mountaineering's highest honours, the Lifetime Achievement Piolet d'Or, his personal style and climbs were described as "visionary".
