Mountaineers Books Freedom of the Hills 8th Edition Paper Back

Since the publication of the first edition in 1960, "Freedom", as the book is known, has endured as a classic mountaineering text. From choosing equipment to tying a climbing knot, and from basic rappelling techniques to planning an expedition--it's all here in this essential mountaineering reference. A team of more than forty experts--all active climbers and climbing educators--reviewed, revised, and updated this compendium to reflect the latest evolutions in mountaineering equipment and techniques. Major updates include a significant new chapter on conditioning, plus detailed and extensive revisions to rescue and first-response, aid climbing, and waterfall and ice climbing.
