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

Dougal Haston: The Philosophy of Risk
"Laconic Scottish hardman Dougal Haston rose from humble beginnings as a baker's son to become one of the "beautiful people" of fashionable 1970s Leysin, Switzerland."

Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate
"The 1978 Austrian expedition (…) wanted to achieve the first Austrian ascent and at the same time (if possible) achieve the first ascent without the use of breathing apparatus. They succeeded in both objectives."

Extreme Alpinism:
Climbing Light, Fast & High

Extreme Alpinism: Climbing Light, Fast, & High is a very different sort of alpine climbing manual. A glance through the index is proof enough: you'll find no listings here for self-arrest, knots, or French technique. But you will find references for "fear," "death," and "experience and learning (see also maturity)." That last one says it all..."

Feeding the Rat
“Mo Anthoine is probably one of the most well-known British climbers to the climbing fraternity and yet a complete unknown to the general public, and this is just how he likes it."

Fifty Classic
Climbs of North America

"Similar in approach to the Wilson books of Britain or the Rebuffat books for the Alps, this one covers half a continent. The range of climbs is wide from the snows of Alaska to the sun-baked sandstone of the SW deserts..."

Flammes de Pierre
"The name of this book of sixteen short stories—which literally means Flames of Rock—refers to the ridge of pinnacles which radiate from Les Drus, in Chamonix. The author has climbed around Chamonix for many years and has absorbed the spirit and the quirks of the climbing scene there—at least the French side of it."

Garry Hemming: The Beatnik of the Alps
"In the early 1960s Gary Hemming rocked the Alps with the first ascents of the American Direct on the Dru, and the South Face of the Fou, then two of Chamonix’s most difficult routes. A daring rescue brightened the limelight..."

Gervasutti's Climbs
"A facsimile reprint of the original 1957 translation of Gervasutti's autobiography. Unavailable for some years this is a worthwhile classic to reprint as the climbs done by Gervasutti were way ahead of their time..."

Great American
Rock Climbs

"Richard DuMais tackles a topic paradoxically simple and difficult in his Great American Rock Climbs by attempting to chronicle a sampling of the great climbing of all grades and types to be found throughout the United States."

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."

Himalaya Alpine Style
"Here's a book that describes the Himalayan climbs that matter to climbers - not necessarily the climbs that have made the participants into the household heroes, but the ones that remain benchmark in the evolution of alpine climbing..."

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."

Hueco Tanks:
Climbing and Bouldering Guide

"If Hemingway had ever written a climbing guide then perhaps the result would have been somewhat like the new Hueco Tanks climbing and bouldering guide. A guide that does more than justice to and keeps in character with 'the best bouldering anywhere'."

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..."

Jerry Moffatt - Revelations
Moffatt and Grimes have done climbing history a service in setting down the story of UK climbing in the “dole era” of the 1980s — a story that was quickly becoming forgotten. </ br> GRAND PRIZE WINNER - BANFF MOUNTAIN BOOK FESTIVAL 2009
