Surprising numbers of people go to big mountains year after year where they die with shocking regularity; others take big risks on smaller cliffs. At these places, even the most cautious climber must accept a degree of danger: moving unroped to save time; braving terrain that's vulnerable to rockfall or avalanche; trusting that the afternoon thunderstorms will hold off long enough for him to get below treeline.
Climb focuses on the most exciting descriptions of the hardest climbing in the world. From the cliffs of Yosemite to the windswept towers of Patagonia to the high peaks of Alaska and the Himalaya, this collection offers classic, harrowing accounts about extreme mountaineering danger and its consequences.
