Mountain climbing is a difficult sport, at best, and its practitioners are unique. Here is a collection of interviews with 15 famed mountain climbers and three historians of the sport. Covering international climbing in all its aspects, including rock-face climbing, ice climbing, and high-summit ascension, these mountaineers relate their experiences, the challenges and risks of their chosen sport, and the compelling drive to engage in a difficult, expensive activity.

From the Inside Flap:

Operating in some of the most challenging and dangerous conditions on earth, mountain climbers are uniquely driven men and women. In these interviews, 15 well-known climbers and three leading historians of the sport, all native to or living in North America, recount experiences shared by only a tiny portion of humanity. They discuss all aspects of international climbing, including physical conditioning, high-summit ascension, the ethics and environmental concerns of the sport, the risks and rewards of mountaineering, and a number of their famed expeditions and first ascents.

About the Author:
