Some of the best from Ascent. Includes fiction and non-fiction by Galen Rowell, Warren Harding, Royal Robbins, Kitty Calhoun Grissom, Terry Gifford, David Roberts, and others.

Ascent was published annually as the mountaineering journal of the Sierra Club, under the primary editorship of Alan Steck and Steve Roper. It appeared regularly for the first eight years and then more occasionally. It is an iconic collectible item due to its excellent writing on mountaineering, fiction, fact, and poetry; as well as photography and art related to the mountain world. “Not only the finest mountaineering journal of the last quarter-century, but the most influential.” – David Roberts, 1993.

Ascent is easily collectible due to its limited run, much like Alpinism, Mountain Review, Mountain World, North American Climber, Polar Circus, Vulgarian Digest, and others, and doesn’t take up too much shelf space, or weight.
