Detailed Product Description
2012. The second issue of a new climbing journal, a superbly done annual in the style of the old Sierra Club Ascent Magazines of 1967-1989.

Conceived by Allen Steck and Steve Roper — real-deal climbers, diamond tough — Ascent was the first climbing-only magazine with literary writing and high-quality photos. Ascent was, as Roper noted, a 'far-out idea.'

Rock and Ice is pleased to announce that Ascent is back again, and packed full with the very best inspiration and stories climbers have to offer.

Climbing’s most prestigious and acclaimed publication, Ascent is a superb blend of tradition and innovation. This 2012 volume shares intense, personal accounts of climbs and achievements that have shaped the sport as we now know it. From racing up the Eiger North Face solo in three hours, to biking from climb to climb in a post WWII Europe, to the diabolical history of the ice axe, as always, Ascent presents a panorama of experiences with prose and imagery that is as finely honed as a set of front points. Ascent deserves a permanent place on the shelf of every serious climber.
