"The purpose of this book," writes George Alan Smith, "is to inculcate some of the fundamental principles of mountaineering, to convey some sense of the enormous satisfactions of the sport into the minds and hearts of those who aspire to the heights. The ascent from the valley to the ramparts o the mountain, the struggle up rock-ribbed regions of snow and ice to the summit, the ensuing return to the valley, an take on the stature of something more than mere sport. It can become a way of life."

Introduction by James Ramsey Ullman.
