From the Publisher:
A cliffhanging collection of some of the world’s
From straightforward narratives of ascents to meticulous self-examination to spiritual reveries, climbing prompts men and women to pour forth essays, articles, and books that are unlike any other field of literature. In Climb, editors Kerry L. Burns and Cameron M. Burns showcase the amazingly vast spectrum that rock and mountain climbing literature offers, including fresh, new tales of adventure.|
From Francesco Petrarch’s 1336 ascent of Mount Ventoux to the early European ascents of the Victorian Age, from Pat Ament’s descent into the Black Canyon of the Gunnision with Layton Kor, to Josh Lowell’s adventures bouldering in Harlem, Climb looks back across the broad field of mountain-related adventures and brings together some of the finest and most poignant stories ever written about rock climbing, mountain ascents, and bouldering.
