North Carolina, 2011, 1st edition. 224 pp, 8 color photos. New large paperback.

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
  • Christine Boskoff
  • Carlos Buhler
  • Charlotte Fox
  • Charles S. Houston
  • Kenneth Kamler
  • Jamling Tenzing Norgay

  • Barbara Washburn
  • Eric Weihenmayer
  • Jim Wickwire
