When Anatoli Boukreev died on the slopes of Annapurna on Christmas day, 1997, the world lost one of the greatest adventurers of our time. In Above the Clouds, both the man and his incredible climbs on Mt. McKinley, K2, Makalu, Manaslu, and Everest-including his diary entries on the infamous 1996 disaster, written shortly after his return-are immortalized. There also are minute technical details about the skill of mountain climbing, as well as personal reflections on what life means to someone who risks it every day. Fully illustrated with gorgeous color photos, Above the Clouds is a unique and breathtaking look at the world from its most remote peaks.Hiking Colorado's geology; Ralph Lee Hopkins
Reaching the highest summit in South America requires careful preparation and detailed instruction. R. J. Secor draws upon his extensive climbing experience to give mountaineers all that’s necessary to top Aconcagua’s 22,841-foot peak. This guidebook features comprehensive information on recommended equipment, safety and health precautions, and conservation issues. It details both the popular and less-traveled routes on Aconcagua reached via the Horcones Valley, South Face, and Vacas and Relinchos Valleys. Also included are a climbing history of Aconcagua and a glossary of valuable Spanish climbing phrases.Bugaboo rock: a climbing guide; Randall Green
For Canadian climbing, no group of peaks provides more variety of exposures, routes, or range of difficulty than the Bugaboos, located in the Purcell wilderness area of British Columbia. A terrific assortment of climbs to the tops of the Bugaboo spires offers unsurpassed magnificence-an encapsulated granite paradise, shut off from the rest of the world by range upon range of outlying peaks.Mountaineering: the freedom of the hills;
Since the publication of the first edition in 1960, Freedom, as the book is known, has endured as a classic mountaineering text. From choosing equipment to tying a climbing knot, and from basic rappelling techniques to planning an expedition — it’s all here in this essential mountaineering reference. A team of more than 40 experts — all active climbers and climbing educators — reviewed, revised, and updated this compendium to reflect the latest evolutions in mountaineering equipment and techniques. Major updates include a significant new chapter on conditioning, plus detailed and extensive revisions to rescue and first-response, aid climbing, and waterfall and ice climbing.
