Detailed Product Description
New York, 1927, 1st edition. 160 pp, 44 b/w photos, 2 page panorama of the Mont Blanc aiguilles, and illustrations, maps on end papers. Bright orange cloth hardcover, spine a little faded, no dust jacket and former owner's name inscription, Very Good.

Travel to the Alps with mountaineering legend, Bradford Washburn. This is the account of Washburn's teenaged climbs in the Alps with his brother, in the company of renowned Alpine photographer Georges Tairraz and the famous guides Antoine Ravanel & Georges Charlet. It includes his account of the famous traverse of the Aiguilles de Chamonix, Grands Charmoz-Grepon traverse, with a climb of the infamous Mummery Crack. There is also a chapter on his ski ascent and ski descent of Mont Blanc.

This was Washburn's first full-size book and it conveys a youthful energy and passion for exploring that would continue well past normal 'retirement' age.

Washburn went on to pioneer major Alaskan climbs including the first ascent of the 'normal' route up Mt McKinley. He is responsible for the definitive maps of Mt Everest, Mt McKinley, the Grand Canyon, and New Hampshire's Presidential Range. He was director for the Boston Museum of Science and was elected in 1985 Honorary Director for Life. He is world-renowned for his unmatched crystal clear photography of mountains, especially for those of mountains in Alaska and the Alps.

He held honorary doctorates from ten colleges and universities and was a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and London's Royal Geographical Society. He was also awarded the National Geographic Society's highest honor, The Centennial Medal, granted for outstanding contributions to geographical exploration.
