Detailed Product Description
Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1992, 5th edition, 2nd printing. 447 pp, b/w photos and illustrations. Used paperback with former owner's name on free FEP. Near Fine.

An updated edition of the bible of mountaineering technique. Rock and ice climbing, modern equipment, snow and glacier travel, weather, leadership and first aid. Mountaineering is as much a cerebral pursuit as it is a physical activity. The synthesis of several disciplines, including ultra-light backpacking, orienteering, weather forecasting, hiking, and climbing, are required to safely make it up any serious peak.

Because of this, aspiring mountain climbers must become downright studious when learning the tricks of the trade. Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills is arguably the best and most respected textbook on the subject. Since its first printing in 1961, more than 500,000 copies of the book have been sold, and it's been translated into 13 languages.

Anyone who spends time in the mountains will benefit from this book - not only serious mountaineers. In 528 pages the book goes through a whirlwind of information, covering everything from wilderness camping and navigation to climbing techniques, rope management, and glacier travel. There are even sections on mountain geology, weather and wilderness ethics.
