Detailed Product Description

UK, 1994, 1st UK edition. 224 pp, color photos. Traces the development of climbing, focussing on 40 notable climbers in the great mountain regions. Great Climbs encompasses the rich, broad spectrum of adventure that is mountain climbing, in a remarkable selection of first-hand accounts (most never before published) by 40 of the foremost mountaineers of modern times. Large-format hardcover with Dust Jacket, Near Fine. SIGNED by Chris Bonington.

'Divided into geographical sections, Great Climbs looks at the development of climbing in the great mountain ranges of the world. Each section places the climbs in context with an introduction to the history of the region. Foremost mountaineers of our day and of recent history then give personal accounts of memorable climbs, offering an illuminating insight into the characters of those who choose to live life beyond the bounds of everyday experience'. The volume includes climbs in the Himalaya, Alps, Andes, Yosemite (El Capitan), the Caucasus, and a little on Africa, with several chapters on and by female climbers.
 
Great Climbs looks at the development of climbing in the great mountainous areas of the world, from the Alps and remote rangers of Europe to the big walls and super ice of North America, from South America and the last great wilderness of Antarctica to the highest challenges in the Himalaya. Each section introduces the history of the region, to put into context the articles that cover many different eras. Beautifully illustrated throughout, Great Climbs will prove fascinating reading for anyone who has every engaged in the rapidly growing sport of mountain climbing.
