climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

50 Years of Alpinism
“Riccardo Cassin has written a masterpiece of an autobiography—possibly the most important mountaineering book to be published in the last twenty-five years!"

9 out 10 climbers...
Navigation through the maze of advice for the self-coached climber. 9 out of 10 climbers are stuck. They are stuck on the same things. Some of the things that hold climbers back from improving their climbing standard are the same as they were 20 years ago: motivation, managing time, and not being able to analyse and correct their own basic technical or tactical errors. But they are also stuck for a new set of reasons.

Anderl Heckmair: My Life
"Heckmair, as well as being rather a good climber, turned out to be rather a good survivor - and a rather splendid yarn teller. In My Life he recounts his rocks-to-riches life story; from orphanage to the Eigerwand..."

Angels of Light
"Jeff Long has written a climbing Western, with philosophical overtones. Yosemite Valley provides the setting and much of the substance of his exciting and extravagant novel."

At the Rising of the Moon
"At the Boardman – Tasker Award ceremony, Somers said, 'My stories may be about climbing, but they are really about relationships'. In fact, they are more focused than that. They are about integrity. Again and again they raise the question, Was it worth it?"

Beyond Risk:
Conversations with Climbers

Beyond Risk is a collection of seventeen interviews conducted by Nicholas O'Connell with the world's most innovative and accomplished climbers. (…)

Beyond the Mountain
Steve House lets nothing get in the way of his mountaineering, and he deserves his position as one of the foremost extreme alpinists in the world. Readers of `Beyond The Mountain' will be awestruck by his commentaries on daring and difficult exploits with routes up demanding mountains in various parts of the globe.

Beyond the Vertical
"Beyond the metaphorical vertical is a place where the search for oneself, the achievement of excellence, the desire for risk, and the struggle for survival become indistinguishably interwoven. Through topologically fertile landscapes, Layton Kor visited this place with an intensity that was rare..."

Big Wall Climbing
“What a relief to see a mountaineering history book by an active climber! Doug Scott’s big wall climbing has taken him to the Alps, Baffin Island, the Hindu Kush, Everest and Yosemite. This considerable cosmopolitan energy has been channelled into an enormous project: the world history of big wall climbing..."

Chomolungma Sings the Blues
"In Chomolungma Sings the Blues, Ed Douglas, editor of Climber, a U.K. magazine, and The (British) Alpine Journal, recounts his experiences and observations on a trek through Nepal in 1995-'96. The main theme of this book (not always easy to decipher) is the degradation of Nepalese culture brought on by Western trekkers and climbers, of whom he does not have many nice things to say."

Climbing Free: My Life in the Vertical World
"My intent has been to describe the experiences that have most shaped my life and love for climbing - writes Lynn Hill as she introduces her autobiography. In 13 chapters this is what Lynn Hill has succeeded in doing."

Climbing Ice
"To climb intelligently today one must come to terms with the mosaic of systems which makes up modern ice climbing. With this book, Yvon Chouinard tells us how. (...)"

Climbing in North America
"The mountaineering library will now not be complete without Climbing in North America, and as a link between more detailed local histories and more specific books on more specific climbs it is a good tool..."

Collins Guide
to Mountains and
Mountaineering

"This is a magnificent volume, copiously illustrated and destined to be an inspiration to both the armchair and the expedition mountaineer."

Defying Gravity
"Gary Arce has delivered a new narrative and anecdotal history of climbing in the Yosemite Valley from the time before the arrival of white settlers in 1833 to modern climbing of 1995. Defying Gravity is a 200-page production illustrated with historic black and white and contemporary color photos.”
