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

Menlove: The Life
of John Menlove Edwards

“It should be said at once that Jim Perrin's new life, Menlove, is not just another book which climbers will want to have on their shelves, although it must come very high in that category. It is a remarkable biography, which deserves to be read by a public of whom many may even want to skip all the climbing bits..."

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...

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..."

In The Throne Room
of the Mountain Gods

"In The Throne Room of the Mountain Gods is a combination of chapters on the history of mountaineering in the Karakoram Range of the western Himalaya interfused with an account of the 1975 American K2 Expedition's attempt on the northwest ridge of that peak..."

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 ..."

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."

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.(...)"

Himalayan Climber
"Each time frequent-flyer Scott leaves England, his Pentax accompanies him, and this book shows his photographic talents to spectacular effect: Himalayan Climber is basically a coffee-table picture book."

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. (...)"

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."

K2: The Story of the
Savage Mountain

"There is a lesson in this book that should make it required reading for any mountaineer who contemplates K2 in his — or her — personal future. This mountain is only for the bold and the very competent."

On the Edge of Europe
On the Edge of Europe is a fine reminder of what the Caucasus has to offer(...)" “This book is the offspring of the 1991 Alpine Club Symposium and attempts to collect together in one volume the first distilled mountaineering history of the range since Freshfield almost a century ago."

The High Mountains
of the Alps

"The real value of the book lies in the inspiration it will give to anyone with even a passing interest in the European Alps. For those of us who have been going there for years, the book will stir memories and provide inspiration for future plans; for the mountaineer who has not yet visited the Alps this is a wonderful introduction to the place where it all began.”

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.”

Hermann Buhl:
Climbing without Compromise

"Messner and Hofler draw on diary entries and letters by Buhl, in addition to other sources not available in English, to give us a portrait more human and fallible than the usual climbing biography."
