Editors Allen Steck and Steve Roper are two of climbing's best-known names. From the American Alpine Club Press, the long-awaited fourteenth issue of the premiere collection of mountaineering writing, photography, and art. Fort hree generations of American climbers and mountaineers, Ascent has represented the literary and photographic pinnacle of creative self-expression. Published almost annually from 1967 to 1984, each edition of Ascent was greeted with universal acclaim by the world climbing community. Edited  by legendary Yosemite climbing pioneers Allen Steck and Steve Roper (and joined this year by former CanadianAlpine Journal editor David Harris), Ascent launched the careers of such well-known authors and photographers as Galen Rowell, Jeff Long, Gordon Wiltsie, Ed Webster, and others. Now published by the American Alpine Club, Ascent is the first new edition of this renowned journal in 15 years. As in previous editions, Ascent contains the full spectrum of climbing, writing, photography and art. Contributions to this new edition range from adventure narratives to fiction, to humor by suchauthors as John Harlin, Steph Davis, and Bob Viola. Two 8-page colorinserts feature the best of modern climbing art and a photo-essay by some of mountaineering's finest photographers.  Ascent was initiated as the mountaineering journal of the Sierra Club. It appeared occasionally over the years. Each issue is a collection of excellent writing about mountaineering, fiction, fact and poetry as well as photography and art related to mountains. Large format paper with full color covers, condition Near Fine-Fine. Signed by Steve Roper and Allen Steck.
