Detailed Product Description
1997. The 1997 edition of the oldest mountaineering journal in the world. Hardcover with DJ, New. Essential reading for all who love the mountains. This mountaineering yearbook includes articles, expedition reports, book reviews, obituaries, memoirs, geography and history of the world's mountains and mountaineers.

'The Antarctic continent provided me with everything that I value most solitude, isolation, commitment, technical difficulty and a magnificent environment ...'  Thus Erhard Loretan describes his two magnificent Antarctic solo climbs in a region where challenging climbing, virgin summits and true adventure can still be found. In the Himalaya, 1996 was a year of tragedy- and some big issues could no longer be ignored. Some of these are tackled, from varying viewpoints, in this 102nd volume.  The 1997 Alpine Journal gives a complete overview of the past year, covering expeditions, rock climbing, history, memoirs and book reviews. Writers include Kurt Diemberger, Sergei Efimov, Erhard Loretan, Stephen Venables, and many other leading mountaineers. With over 50 pages of black and white and colour photographs.
