Other mountain books
Though I’m biased toward one particular mountain and one particular book, the alpine canon is full of adventurous, inspiring, heartbreaking, and possibly even life-changing works. There are also a lot of lemons in there too. But in this post, we’ll focus on just a few of the better ones, a few of my favorites.
Art Davidson’s classic account of the first winter ascent of Denali.
Another memorable recounting of a first, this one of the first successful climb of a treacherous wall on the Eiger in Switzerland known as the White Spider.
A must-read for anyone who wants to know anything and everything about Washington’s Mount Rainier.
This one probably needs no explanation.
