Item description for American Alpine Journal 2006 (American Alpine Journal) by III Harlin John...
Published annually since 1929, The American Alpine Journal is internationally acknowledged as the world's finest journal of its kind. The 70th volume of climbing's "journal of record" offers the most complete picture available of the world of climbing for 1998. From articles that present the climbing possibilities of Antarctica and Africa, to stories on the new bigwall frontiers of Mexico and Madagascar, to the alpine sagas on Bhagarathi III and Khan Tengri, and the emergence of the former Soviet climbers on the world stage, the 1999 AAJ continues its tradition as mountaineering's institutional memory.
Stories include "Changabang," by Carlos Buhler; "8000 Meters and More," by Alex Huber; "Shipton Spire," by Steph Davis; and "Dhromo," by Doug Scott. Illustrated with 10 color and 150 b&w photos (35 with route overlays), plus 10 topos and maps.
