Detailed Product Description
2013. The third issue of a new climbing journal, a superbly done annual in the style of the old Sierra Club Ascent Magazines of 1967-1989.
 
This issue contains articles:
 
Royal Robbins-writes of the first ascent of El Capitan's North American Wall, at the time the world's hardest technical rock route. Includes a photo gallery of never-before published images of this legendary climb.

Hayden Kennedy, a second generation alpinist, takes us on his wild adventure as he blazes new ground in the Karakoram and makes a rare ascent of The Ogre.

Mark Synnott sails the South Pacific in search of unclimbed stone and meets the direct descendants of the infamous Bounty's mutinied crew. As he discovers, being isolated on a spit of sand isn't much different from the stark reality of climbing.

Also in this issue are pieces by Alex Honnold, Niall Grimes, Dave Graham, John Long, and a photo gallery of climbing's Lifers by Nathan Smith.

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 2013 volume shares intense, personal accounts of climbs and achievements that have shaped the sport as we now know it.  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. New Magazine style format, softcover, with perfect binding (that means squared off and glued, not stapled).
