In the early 19th century, the German naturalist Ernst Haeckel was one of the first to write about the possibility of a scientific explanation of the phenomenon. In the early 20th century, the Russian surgeon and physicist Nikolai Vavilov published a book on the effect of altitude on human health, the first scientific account of the disease. Yet, despite a growing interest in the phenomenon outside of Europe, no one had recorded the cold in the tropics.
The fitness of the cold-water dive, though, has been a source of debate for more than 100 years. "The Cold-Water Diving Expedition of 1806 to 1808 was a successful expedition and, according to many accounts, the first expedition to use the cold-water dive," said Dr. Sifa Pham, a water resources ecologist at the University of South Florida. In fact, the Sanscrit term frigida is also used for the act of forgetting; and indeed it is often associated with the "cold lack of curiosity" that we experienced on the expedition to Europe. With the advent of general anesthesia in the late Middle Ages, the use of alcohol was banned in an attempt to curb the practice of drunkenness. According to The Book of Kells, a legendary work by a late medieval saint of the Church of Ireland, the drinking of wine as a religious sacrament was banned because it was "as bad as to give the blood to demons." The practice of drinking alcohol as a sacrament was simply replaced by the more common practice of drinking wine or beer.

After the Age of Enlightenment As the age of enlightenment—the period of the French Revolution and the Scientific Revolution—worsened, the practice of alcohol as a sacrament was again revived. In the 16th century, the Dutch king, Haarlem-born, defeated the Dutchmen at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, in which the Dutch were defeated, but the battle was lost because "the Frenchmen had not yet learned how to use their arms." In the 17th century, the French came to the aid of the Dutch fort at Zeebrugge, but when it was attacked by the Germans, the French were forced to retreat. In the 18th century, the French adopted the practice of "luncheon-carrying," which was based on the idea that it was more satisfying to eat with one's hands than to eat with a knife.

The illustrations that accompany the posthumous edition of the Hike to the Peak also evoke a sense of adventure and adventure-seeking.
The pictures of Mount Ventoux, the giant heart-shaped mountain that dominates the 16th century landscape, are in stark contrast with the harshness of the ridges that surround them. The color swatches feel authentic, and the text is written in a light, crisp style. As a result, the book is a valuable addition to any mountaineering collection, and it will serve as a fine companion to any mountaineering guide.

He wrote that the journey was "not in any sense pleasant" but "a certain pleasure" in that "he was not hindered by the fatigue of the route. In the 18th century, French poet and writer Jacques Maritain published a poem that expressed the same sentiment. A similar book about Mount Ventoux was published in the 19th century at the height of the Mont Ventoux-Ventoux Railroad (1891–1903). This movement helped spread the notion that the Great Wall of China was a natural barrier between China and Europe. Western depiction of this climb is generally mythical. It is often depicted as a white man climbing a mountain whose most famous icon is that of a white man in a white robe (Mountain Man) or a white male wearing white robes (White Man of the Alps).
While the white man of Mount Ventoux is not a historical person, his legend is an enduring one. The Mount Ventoux legend was part of the cultural fabric in the early 20th century and persisted in the form of the fable of the White Man of Mount Ventoux. It has also been a part of the folklore of many other mountain ranges.
