Climb focuses on the most exciting descriptions of climbing in the world, from the cliffs of Yosemite to the windswept towers of Patagonia to the high peaks of Alaska and the Himalayas. Stories include Jon Krakauer’s first-person look at the risks of climbing Mt. McKinley’s West Buttress route, which has killed scores of climbers in recent years; Chris Bonington’s classic account of the Annapurna expedition, which introduced technical rock climbing at high altitude; Tom Patey’s hilarious profile of the great climber and even greater misanthrope Don Whilans, describing an attempt the two made on the Eiger North Face; and Rob Taylor’s experience breaking a leg high on Africa’s Mount Kenya.
