Mountain climbing is a difficult sport, at best, and its practitioners are unique. Here is a collection of interviews with 15 famed mountain climbers and three historians of the sport. Covering international climbing in all its aspects, including rock-face climbing, ice climbing, and high-summit ascension, these mountaineers relate their experiences, the challenges and risks of their chosen sport, and the compelling drive to engage in a difficult, expensive activity.

  • Stacy Allison
  • Pete Athans
  • Brent Bishop
