Detailed Product Description
Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1989, 1st edition. 213 pp, b/w and color photos, illustrations and map inside and on the front and rear end papers. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. 

Essential reference to the 7,000 meter peaks, now getting scarce. The peaks of the Himalaya, Karakoram and Central Asia are the highest in the world. As there are only 14 peaks over 8,000 meters, and they are all dangerous. Most are hard to climb, inaccessible,  expensive, often require a over 5 experienced climbers -- tough climbs all. Consequently the 400+ 7,000 meter peaks have a fascination for climbers, especially now that they have become increasingly accessible to outsiders.

Furthermore, those peaks which have already been climbed are now offering exciting possibilities for ascents by new routes. This book provides necessary information on each of the approximately 414 peaks between 7,000 and 8,000 meters. It contains detailed summaries of their location, access and routes, together with descriptions of their individual histories of exploration and ascents. Yes my dear, first ascents of major peaks are still available. There are even more 6000 meter peaks, with over 100 in the Andes.
