Back in print – the three Washburn Boys’ Books by Boys! ‘Among the Alps with Bradford’ (1927) in which Brad describes exploring the peaks about Chamonix, making the Charmoz-Grépon traverse, and his attempt on Mont Blanc. ‘Bradford on Mount Washington’ (1928) describes a winter ascent of New England's harshest mountain. ‘Bradford on Mount Fairweather’ (1930) in which Brad, and five others, made the second attempt on Mt. Fairweather (15,300'). These are all great reads and quite hard to find in their original editions.

This book is from the Phil Hanson Collection. Phil's love of rock and ice climbing transcends to his collection of treasured books. He discovered his passion for the sport later in life, when Henry Barber gave a motivational speech at a sales meeting for the outdoor apparel company he worked for. Phil and Henry became fast friends and cherished the time they spent together climbing in Colorado, Utah, California and the East Coast. Some of Phil's most favorite climbs were in his own backyard of Eldorado Canyon in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to being an avid climber, Phil also loved skiing, fly fishing, and music. Phil spent a lifetime in the outdoor business with Woolrich for 25+ years and Orvis for 3 years.
