"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

* 50th anniversary edition of the title considered "bible" of climbing
* With nearly 1 million copies sold, this is the all-time bestselling mountaineering and climbing title
* Printed on 100% recycled paper

Since the publication of the first edition in 1960, Freedom , as the book is known, has endured as a classic mountaineering text. 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 40 experts -- all active climbers and climbing educators -- reviewed, revised, and updated this compendium to reflect the latest evolutions in mountaineering equipment and techniques. Major updates include a significant new chapteron conditioning, plus detailed and extensive revisions to rescue and first-response, aid climbing, and waterfall and ice climbing.
