Detailed Product Description

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

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.

So when we obtained a copy that is perfectly brand new in all aspects we were stunned. It appears to have never been read, nor had more than one owner since 1979. Inside there is no writing of any kind, no stains from dirty fingers, nothing. The book's exterior is the same, literally looking as fresh as the same as the day it was printed. there is no fading or darkening, no soiling, not even wear or rubbing where the book meets the bookshelf.

The killer is the dust jacket. It seems to be near impossible for any dust jacket to survive for 41 years and remain pristine. This jacket does actually have a slight amount of wear at the bottom of the spine, which is nearly invisible with a protective clear plastic dust jacket protector in place.

If you are a collector of mountaineering books who searches out books in the finest possible condition, this is the book for you. In the 50 years I have read, collected and sold mountaineering books, I have never seen a copy of this book anywhere near as good.

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.
