About this title


The year 2000 marks the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of an 8,000-meter peak. In the decade that followed, all but one of the world’s fourteen 8,000m peaks were summited. (The single exception was Shishapangma.) This was the golden age of high-altitude climbing.

A must-read for mountaineers and mountaineering history buffs, Climbing the World’s 14 Highest Mountains brings together the stories behind the conquest of every peak and describes how each has been ascended since then. The epic drama of groundbreaking climbs comes alive through stunning, large-format photographs. The accompanying text describes each peak’s physical characteristics, the origins of its name, who discovered it (and how and when), and a catalog of all the significant climbs, from the first through the present day.
