Detailed Product Description

SF, Sierra Club, 1979, 1st edition. 324 pp, many photos. Large-format hardcover, with Dust Jacket, Fine.

In our experience Fifty Classic Climbs in North America is one of the climbing books that many people read, and read again, and refer to frequently. We say this because so many of the copies that we see are very worn, torn, missing their dust jackets, and sometimes falling apart.

Not this copy. This copy is Fine, nearly flawless. The Dust Jacket is not chipped or price clipped, only a little faded on the spine.

The book is really a list, description and guidebook of the author's picks of the fifty finest rock, ice and mountain climbs in the USA and Canada. This book has become an American classic, and influenced many a climber. Even though climbing standards have risen incredibly since 1979, and due to personal conditioning and experience there are more people climbing higher mountains than ever before (look at Mt Everest today), many of the climbs in this book are still a goal for thousands of rock climbers and mountaineers.
