A cliffhanging collection of 15 of the world’s greatest climbing adventures. 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. Climb brings together tales of climbers, boulderers, and mountaineers from around the world. These include Francesco Petrarch’s 1336 ascent of Mount Ventoux, Pat Ament’s descent into the Black Canyon of the Gunnison with Layton Kor, Isabella Bird’s 1873 ascent of Longs Peak, Mick Fowler on Tawoche, and much more.
