Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Seattle, 1960, 1st edition, 1st printing. 430 pp, ills. This is by far the best selling and most influential mountaineering technique book in the second half of the 20th century. It has sold over 1/2 million copies since 1960. It's fun to collect all the editions, and I have even seen a collection of every printing of every edition. This first edition is the scarcest because it was probably only sold in the northwest, so few copies ended up in climber's hands until the 2nd edition. 
 
Chapters include Equipment, Camping and Sleeping, Alpine Cuisine, Wilderness Travel, Navigation in the Hills, Rock Climbing: Routefinding; Balance; Counterforce;  Roped Climbing; Belaying; Pitoncraft and Rappels. Snow and Ice Climbing: Snow; Ice; Glaciers; Arrests and Belays; Safe Climbing: The Climbing Party and its Leadership; Climbing Dangers; First Aid; Alpine Rescue; The Climbing Environment: Mountain Geology; The Cycle of Snow; Mountain Weather; Appendix: Food Requirements for Climbers. Plates include Mt. St. Elias in the Yukon; Mt Formidable; Ripsaw Ridge; Mt. Fury; Bugaboos; Dome Peak; Seward Glacier; Forbidden Peak; The Terrible Traverse on Mt Constance; Serra Peaks; North Ridge of Mount McArthur; Mt. Index; Mt. Logan; Mt Olympus on the Olympic Peninsula; Puyallup Glacier, Mt. Rainier; Mt. Robson.

Original Hardcover, book is without flaws, no writing, no wear, no bumos, no stains, as nice and clean as you could hope for. The original clear Plastic Dust Jacket is also nearly flawless, book and DJ are Fine.  The dust jacket being 1960 era clear plastic was not designed for collectibility nearly 60 years later, and is rarely found as nice as this one.
