I would highly recommend this book as a 'must-have' for any aspiring mountaineer's library." -Ed Viesturs, renowned 8,000 meter peak alpinist * If the mountains are my church, then 'Freedom' is my Bible. From my early 5.4 leads more than 20 years ago to the present, it has served me well as a base for exploring every facet of the mountains. As a very young climber I read it cover to cover, then dug through it again & again for nuggets of wisdom. I still do." - Will Gadd, foremost water, ice & mixed climber.
