Alaska Ascents: World Class Mountaineers Tell Their Stories

Alaska Ascents: World-Class Mountaineers Tell Thei - Bill Sherwonit, Fred Beckey Nice selection that shows the huge variety of mountaineering. It highlights both quite different places and climbing methods and mindsets that changed immensely over time. Of course, understanding the technical aspects and physical endurance are totally beyond me, so I don't have the appreciation for these stories that I might. They do get very scary, but I like having gained some slight sense of the past of this sport in Alaska.
