This month we have chosen for a classic book that hasn't changed much in a few decades as it covers just about anything...

Mountaineering, the freedom of the Hills; by Don Graydon (Editor), Kurt Hanson (Editor), MountaineersSociety

Paperback: 528 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 1.47 x 9.03 x 7.29
Publisher: Mountaineers Books; ISBN: 0898864275; 6th Rev edition (October 1997)

As summer season is approaching in the northern hemisphere; many mountaineers are getting ready to climb again.
Whether you are just starting out with hillwalking or you sharpen your icetools weekly, this is the one book that rightly is known as 'the bible of mountaineering'.

You will never know too much about the versatility of mountaineering and I recommend this book for every climber, hiker or armchair mountaineer.
Over 500 pages filled with clear drawings of techniques and knowledge.

Everything from building a snowcave to using a 'Texan prusik' and rockclimbing technique is covered.
Mountaineering is not just one of these disciplines, it's always a mixture of everything and therefore it is good to have knowledge on all aspects before you head out into the wild, whether it's Denali or that big boulder in the park.

This is the only book around truly covering 'Mountaineering'; it's a classic and if all great mountaineers own a copy and still read it, why shouldn't you?

Amazon has taken off 30% (now only $17.47), so get it now!

Happy reading and safe climbing,
