Product Details


'As close to the Bible as mountaineering-specific books get, this new printing (8th edition) of the classic guide to mountaineering from Quiller Publishing Ltd covers just about everything you'll ever need to know in as authoritative a manner as you'll ever need. It is truly comprehensive, and not just for the hard stuff - this covers everything from taking a bearing to placing protection.' Trail '...a classic mountaineering text book with a wealth of information and very clear diagrams. It would be a useful addition to anyone's mountaineering bookshelves.' Scottish Mountaineer 'Promise: An essential mountaineering bible regardless of your climbing creed. Perfomance: Whether you're just getting into hiking, or you're a seven-summit veteran, this reference book celebrating its 50th year in print will be dusted off again and again. Study all the outdoor fundamentals you could ever hope to acquire in this heavily detailed and neatly illustrated manual. Learn how to lead a high alpine pitch, understand mountain geology, gain new tips on navigation or arrest a fall while tying yourself off with the correct knot. First published in 1960 and now written by a team of more than 40 expert climbers, this 8th edition reflects the changes in equipment and technique across all climbing disciplines for today's enthusiasts. Verdict: Worthy of a flick through before any trip, this is the definitive guide for any mountain lover. No climber's bookshelf is complete without it.' WideWorld magazine "To its devoted readers, Freedom of the Hills continues to invoke a sense of wonder, stewardship and responsibility - a guide to earning personal liberation in the natural world. 'What this book captured, what it meant, what it hinted at that was so crucial to my fascination with mountaineering was this: Freedom, itself, was the most important thing,' declares Steve House in the current introduction. 'Freedom to explore who I am. Freedom afforded by learned skills to explore any mountain wilderness... It's what still drives me today.'" Alpinist 'If there is only one 'how to' book to read for the aspirant and expert alike, it is Freedom of the Hills. In fact, it is fair to say that Freedom is the definitive guide to mountains and climbing and has influenced pretty much every climber.' Conrad Anker 'The lessons I learned in the Mountaineers climbing course in 1945 stood me on the summit of Mount Everest in 1963. To see that knowledge put into a book was wonderful. That it has evolved into the best book on climbing, updated by active climbers, is remarkable. I have told many people, including my sons, 'If you want to climb mountains, read Mountaineering: Freedom of the Hills. Then read it again so you know, for sure, how to get down.' Jim Whittaker
