Detailed Product Description
2018, 1st edition. 824 pages, 290 illustrations and 60 maps. The Andes is the most detailed and complete history ever written about mountaineering in the largest mountain range in the western hemisphere. The book includes a list of over 3,000 first ascents in the range—an unparalleled resource for any mountaineer.  The Andes is the longest continental mountain range in the world, and has an average height of 4000 meters; the very height that measure the top peaks of the Alps. There are 100 peaks over 6000 meters in the Andes, and the major period of first ascents were the 1930s and 1950s, with some earlier and later.

The Andes is the most detailed and complete history ever written about the range. The book also includes a list of over 3,000 first ascents in the range—an unparalleled resource for any mountaineer.

The history of climbing in the Andes has more unanswered questions than that of any other mountain range in the world. 

This climbing history began in the late Stone Age and covers a span of more than 15,000 years. The Andes is a climbing history that spans the ages, documenting the ascents of thousands of adventurous souls of all epochs: from modern mountaineers, to from unknown cavemen, hunters, Indians, grave-diggers, and miners to explorers, scientists, surveyors and artists! 

Book is new, large format, 1.5''x11''x2.5'' thick. Softcover, only edition, new condition. Book weight is 4 pounds.

Due to the large size and weight, extra postage will be requested for Media, Priority or International Mail.
