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

Beyond the Mountain 

by Steve house


Patagonia Books, 2009, 288 pages with 81 black, white and color photographs

Winner of the 2009 Broadman Tasker Award
Winner of the 2009 Banff Mountain Book Award for Mountain Literature


"We see that Steve House truly has taken alpinism to its furthest known reaches, and his deeds speak volumes about how traditional expedition mountaineering has desecrated the peaks. House’s voice shines on the blow-by-blow accounts of his climbs, but loses some focus, perhaps by design, when he treads towards any solid revelations about why he continues a seemingly joyless pursuit of high places. Alas, Steve House, you confound me. Still, Beyond the Mountain as a summary confirms Steve House as an extraordinary visionary."
Chris Kalous, Rock&Ice

"[Beyond the Mountain is] a rare and profoundly personal glimpse of the drive, dedication and focus behind today's light-and-fast ascents."
Michael Kennedy, Alpinist

"House's Beyond the Mountain is raw, funny, and tragic, but never forced. Above all else, this is a story of goals fueled by energy, rewards, and triumphs meshed with soul-baring confession."
