Detailed Product Description

Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1989, 1st US edition. 213 pp, b/w and color photos, maps, mapped end papers. Ex Lib hardcover with dust jacket. Book has a few library marks and card pocket but little wear. Near Fine. 

Essential reference to the 7000 meter peaks, now very scarce. The peaks of the Himalaya, Karakoram and Central Asia are the highest in the world and consequently they have a perennial fascination for climbers, especially now that they have become increasingly accessible to outsiders.

Furthermore, those peaks which have already been climbed are now offering exciting possibilities for ascents by new routes. This book provides necessary information on each of the over 400 known peaks between 7,000 and 8,000 meters. It contains detailed summaries of their location, access and routes, together with descriptions of their individual histories of exploration and ascents.
