With more than 50 percent new text and a stunning 16-page color insert, Climb! takes readers through the evolution of climbing, from the first technical climbs, to the improvised free climbs of the 60s and 70s, to the sport climbing of the 80s, to the extreme climbing of the 90s. Conflicts and competitions among climbers, of which there are many, are documented here, as is the entry and accomplishments of women climbers.This book will capture fans of the original book and build a new audience, as well.
