Overview

The summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters. This is a gorgeous atlas of eight of the world's greatest mountains on all its continents: Everest, Fuji, Matterhorn, Kilimanjaro, Denali, Puncak Jaya, Chimborazo and Vinson Massif. Clear, accessible texts by Robin Jacobs break down the geography of each mountain, its flora and fauna, the history of its conquest, tales of local populations and indigenous mythologies, and finally, how best to climb it. The routes to the summit are explained as are the individual climbing challenges posed by each mountain. Further chapters provide information on how mountains are formed, climbing terms, how to tie knots and what to do in case of an avalanche. A must have for any young explorer or climbing enthusiast!
