Mountaineering : The Freedom of the Hills - 5th Ed

by Graydon, Don

Condition: Very Good/No Jacket

Swan Hill Press, 1996. 5th Edition . Soft cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 7.5" x 9. P/B 447 pages, condition is Very good. For over thirty years and through four editions, Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills has been the "bible" of the climbing world. An essential teaching tool and resource for novice to advanced mountaineers, Freedom is the standard text for climbing courses throughout the United States and abroad, and even has been used as a training manual by the U.S. military. Completely updated and revised, the 5th edition redefines the basics with expanded chapters on the latest developments in equipment, technique, snow and glacier travel, safety, and leadership. New sections on rock climbing, an entirely new chapter on winter and expedition climbing, plus 350 all-new illustrations, make Freedom the most comprehensive and contemporary source available on mountaineering. Written and coordinated by The Mountaineers, a Seattle-based outdoor organization founded in 1906, Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills is a consensus on accepted, safe principles and methods of mountaineering. This book gathers the wisdom, instruction, and experience of some of the world's best climbers into one indispensable volume.
