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

Shiro Shirahata continues his odyssey of mountain photography with yet another large format book, following his earlier successes with "The European Alps" and "Nepal Himalaya".

The Mountain Spirit
“This is an unsatisfactory book. Its purpose is a syncretic views of men's intellectual, spiritual, and artistic relationship with the mountain as landscape or image ..."

The Shining Mountain
“It is very good—an exciting tale well told, giving a real insight into what it is like out at the front. This was one of the hardest routes so far tackled among big mountains. The resulting gripping story is a must for the mountaineer's bookshelf, if indeed he has any room remaining on it.”

The Shishapangma Expedition
"The late Alex Maclntyre and Doug Scott's account of their expedition to climb the 8012-meter Shishapangma by its unexplored southwest face is both fascinating and unusual—in large part because all six of the team members contribute to the narrative. As a result, the strengths, the weaknesses, the humor, the bickering and backbiting are all there."

The Wildest Dream: The Biography of George Mallory
"The book is a magnificent portrait of the most famous mountaineer in history, and certainly the most incisive dissection of his complex character that has yet been achieved. Better than all of that, it is beautifully written and compelling; a tribute to the journalistic craftsmanship of Peter Gilman."

Thin Air: Encounters
in the Himalayas

"It is a remarkable book, full of thoughts and reflection yet never indulging in excessive introspection, full of strong feeling yet never sentimental. There are some fascinating portraits of contemporary climbers."

This Climbing Game
“The idea of an anthology of climbing humour is a good one, supported by a tradition and wealth of witty words from climbing writers over the decades. Walt Unsworth has selected some good articles, many of which have only recently re-appeared in other anthologies, giving it a strong dose of a déja-vu.(...)"

This Game of Ghosts
"The book is not so much about why we climb - Simpson can't answer that for himself, much less the rest of us - but why we take such risks for such fleeting rewards. Simpson's friends and acquaintances drop one by one throughout the book, each time making Simpson wonder why. The death toll includes not just his friends but his heroes too. Nobody seems immune..."

Training For Climbing
„For anyone interested in the physiology of climbing, and of sports in general, Training for Climbing is a great read. There are already a number of books on the climbing-store shelf that talk about training and suggest specific routines, but none explain the physiological and neural factors involved — until now..."

Trango:
The Nameless Tower

"As an expedition book, it is something entirely different. It is teeming with anecdotes and funny stories, as refreshing as a mountain stream in contrast to the usual treadmill of endeavour and heroics performed by supermen at high altitude."

Voices from the Summit
“Have you ever wanted to sit down with David Breashears, Lynn Hill, or Ricardo Cassin and ask them what they thought about climbing’s current state of affairs? Or maybe try to gain some insight into their passion and drive? If your answer is “yes” then Voices from the Summit is what you’ve been looking for..."

Waterfall Ice
"Jeff Lowe’s Waterfall Ice is a serious and effective instructional video on how to climb ice, as well as being entertaining and enjoyable. It is designed to take an absolute beginner through the various stages of ice-climbing experience right through to climbing extreme mixed ice routes..."

We Aspired
"We Aspired appears twenty years after the last events it describes have taken place: events people, landscape, movement, and emotion percolating in memory for years, until Sinclair could find their essences in language. In this book the great days are recounted with a rare precision and grace commensurate to the task."

Wizards of Rock
Wizards of Rock is a historical overview of free climbing in America beginning with its roots in early explorers like John Muir and Elkanah J. Lamb, carrying through to contemporary climbers the likes of Tommy Caldwell, Beth Rodden, Alex Huber, and seemingly everyone in between...

Women Climbing: 200 Years of Achievement
"Bill Birkett and Bill Peascod took on a difficult task when they decided to write a history of women climbing, knowing that they might get criticism from all sides."
