With more than 600,000 copies sold, Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills is the acclaimed bible for climbers all over the world, and this new edition marks the 50th anniversary of this seminal title.

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.
