Detailed Product Description



New York, American Alpine Club, 1964, 1st edition. 155 pp, photos.  Red cloth hardcover, Bright and Fine. Previous owner's name neatly written on endpaper, else very clean. This book was not issued with a dust jacket.

This is currently perhaps the most desired collectible rock climbing guidebook in the USA. Its humor, clear descriptions, good photos, and air of confidence set the tone for many guidebooks to follow.

From the website of the AAC:

The Shawangunks is the finest rock climbing area in the Eastern United States and is internationally known for its spectacular overhangs and wide range of excellent climbs in every grade. It is one of the few places where beginners and experts alike can climb side by side on routes of equal quality but opposite extremes of difficulty. In the 1980s a surge of new route activity in the highest grades has given the Gunks undeniable world-class status.
