Description
Published annually since 1929, this is the world's journal of record for big new routes and remote mountain explorations. It is the reference for everyone planning anything new in the mountains, or venturing into remote ranges. With nearly 200 pages of exciting stories about the most important climbs of the year and 300 pages of short reports about new routes in the world's mountains- all told by the climbers themselves. The lead stories for 2005 include: The amazing exploits of a passel of American climbers in Pakistan; Kelly Cordes and Josh Wharton on the massive Azeem; Ridge of Great Trango (probably the biggest technical route ever climbed); Steve House's final solo success on K7; Several near misses on Nanga Parbat; Peter Croft's binge of standard-busting new routes in California's High Sierra; The huge Russian success on the north face of Jannu; The Spectacular new route on Cerro Torre; and the bizarre "free" ascent of the Hallucinogen Wall
