Europe - Norway - Rjukan Oslo Number of routes: Google Description Introduction Rjukan - an ice climber's dream? Imagine a place with more than waterfalls, almost all of which have easy access and a stable climate that garantees long periods of cold weather.
Add in a local population that welcomes visiting ice climbers, a dramatic World War II history and great skiing on offer for 'rest' days and this is just not a place to dream about - it is Rjukan. Situated in the centre of southern Norway, with fairly short access from the main cities, and with world class ice climbing, it is no wonder that the place has rapidly gained popularity.
See a Problem?
This is the second guidebook to the Rjukan area and hopefully it is eagerly anticipated. The previous guidebook, published in , is now out of print.
There are some resources describing Rjukan on the internet none of these do the area real justice in describing what Rjukan has to offer for the visiting ice climber. Rjukan is still a relatively unknown place for most climbers but most who visit Rjukan regularly retuen again and again. The area has also been visited by many of the world's elite ice climbers who are all in agreement about the undisputed quality of the climbing available here. Another important fact about Rjukan is the accessibility of the waterfalls. Most of the climbs described in this guidebook are easy to get to, even in heavy snow conditions.
Adding to the beauty of the place are the magnificent surroundings with Gaustatoppen as a natural high, rising nearly m from the valley floor. Rjukan was originally a litte industrial town, but today the area focuses mostly on tourism, meaning that visiting ice climbers are always welcomed by the locals. Google Description Introduction It is not the purpose on this guide to cataloque every route that has been done. The routes spoken about in this book where the first of note in the area or, being of later and more recent times, are those that add to the history by some uniqueness, power, or essential personality.
A few of the routes described are pivotal to an era, or to the current era. Some are the most difficult in the area, while many are included for the reason that they are favourites for their beauty - in some cases simple or moderate yet having a quality that has been a fascination to generation. The majority of routes in the Boulder area have at least some beautiful aspect. Choosing involves a responsibility, which I am willing to take based on the years of experience I have had with the rock formations near Boulder.
Opinions differ, and certainly there are many worthwhile people and climbs not here mentioned. I have tried to avoid pointless, rinky-dink, or overly contrieved routes, and routes that are dangerous. Of course any route can be dangerous if the climber is not the measure of it. There are many good areas around Boulder to climb, but these hold the true history.

Google Description Introduction This book is meant to bring to you, the climber, some knowledge of how those changes to climbing have affected us as athletes. It is also meant to help you understand physiologically what is going on in your body when you climb and train. The information you get here is a good base of knowledge for you to take to a doctor or physiotherapist when you think you are suffering from one of the injuries or syndromes. Also, as medicine for climber is still in its infancy relative to other sports like skiing or football , many doctors might not realize what levels of stresses are being placed on your body.
Your knowledge of what might be happening will help the doctor make an informed decision and point you down the correct road to recovery. That said, you should also know this: This book is not here for you to make a self-diagnosis and then come up with your own treatment. Any problem you have that brings you to reading this book should be looked at by a trained professional as the exact diagnosis is very difficult to make. This book is to help you understand that diagnosis.

By page nine I had vertigo, by page 36 I had the shakes, and when I came to the colour photographs I just curled up and made pathetic whimpering noises On Top of the World tells the story of that historic climb, the courage and determination it took to scale the world's highest peak. Rebecca Stephens's interest in climbing came surprisingly late, considering her unprecedented Himalayan triumph, when, as a journalist, she accompanied an Anglo-American expedition on Everest's North East Ridge in Her passion for mountains grew at an astounding rate - in only four years of climbing she scaled some of the world's major peaks: Here, she gives a step-by-step account of the preparation - physical and psychological - for her celebrated feat on Everest, telling of difficulties and fears during the climb, as well as the elation she felt on the summit of the world's highest mountain.

Purtroppo non mi resi subito conto di quanto lavoro avrebbe comportato un progetto simile. Ho pensato questa guida da alpinista e la propongo principalmente ad un pubblico di alpinisti. Purtroppo le guide che escono di tanto in tanto, seppur ottime, sono sempre antologie di vie scelte. Era mia ambizione anche quella di creare una guida minuziosa, da cui risultasse veramente un quadro completo della situazione in Valle. Inoltre, in questi ultimi anno, si sta scoprendo anche il suo potenziale sportivo sulle grandi pareti.
A questo proposito, mi auguro che gli attuali e i futuri chiodatori rispettino sempre e comunque gli itinerari classici. Google Review A handbook for experienced climbers covering all the physical and psychological aspects of climbing. Google Description Introduction This guidebook concentrates especially on the sport climbing crags, that is to say those that have in-situ protections and therefore guarantee a high level of safety.
They can be identified by the presence of spitz on most routes, with closely spaced protections and safe stances, in which moulinettes are used for single-pitch climbs. There are a great number of crags with these characteristics in Sardinia, therefore it has been necessary to make a choice: The rest have been excluded, either because they are too isolated from the others or because they are but few in number and many climbers would not be interested in visiting them as yet.
I have also included two bouldering areas and two crags where traditional climbing techniques are used on short routes, in order to offer sport climbers the opportunity to confront a different reality. I deliberately ommited the areas or the routes with an alpine stamp but I have included some of the longest routes that are bolted with spitz or are closer in style to sport climbing.
On some routes it is necessary to use nuts and friends in addition to the protections already in place, but this will always appear in the route description. The 14 areas described, are always preceded by an introduction with a range of information common to all the crags such as road access, climate, and accomodation. Each crag in described concisely with its history and the general characteristics of the site. This is followed by a table with the list of the routes, bearing the same number as the related graphic.
For each route there is given: Demonstrations of many of the tactics and methods described in the book.

Detailed approach and descent information, descriptive topos, and startling photos will get the experienced cragster floating, flailing or failing on some of the world's biggest, most awesome granite cliffs. Don Reid is a rock climbing guide living in Joshua Tree, California. Introduction Yosemite Valley continues to reveal itself as an incomparable beautiful and vast rock-sculptured wonder.
Decade after decade, it has been an inspiring dream for clibers, and provided the fulfilling reality of supreme graniteclimbing experience. The number of climbers attracted to Yosemite, and the level of drama played out in this arena, is testimony to Yosemite's allure, as in the sheer number of routes established by these climbes. It is the claim of this book to distill from these numerous routes the essence of quality Yosemite climbing. In such renowned area as Yosemite, a significant number of routes stand out indisputably as classic in nature. Many others are included here because they have shown themselves to be popular, rewarding - and convenient to reach.
Nonetheless, skimming a mere handful of routes out of the barrel clearly is a subjective process. Appraised with close to 20 years of climbing experience in Yosemite Valley, and by associating with the climbers of the valley, the author aims to provide a fun and rewarding sample of Yosemite climbing.

Google Review The routes described offer a challenge to all climbers who perform at severe standard and upwards, who would like to attempt longer routes in a mountain setting but without the oppressive objective dangers found in areas of higher altitude. The increased length, ever present concern with route finding and time pressure to finish without benighting, add a further dimension to both the joy and thrill of the climbing experience.

Description Backside text This book invites climbers to enjoy the best of Pyrenean rock climbing, in an area hitherto neglected by British climbers. There are m routes on immaculate andesite on the Pic du Midi d'Ossau; m routes on hard sandstone in the 10 mile long, one mile deep canyon of Ordesa; whilst the m conglomerate climbs on the towers and walls of Riglsos are mind-blowing in their stunning grandeur.

Introduction This book is intended as an invitation to climbers to enjoy all that is best about rock climbing in the British style, sustained free moves with natural protection in the bigger arena of the Pyrenees and its environs.
A m route on immaculate andesite leading to the summit slopes of a 3,m peak is not uncommon on the Pic du Midi d'Ossau.
A m route on hard sandstone in a mile long, mile deep, mile wide canyon is representative of Ordesa while the towers and walls of Riglos growing out of the Spanish plain give m routes of stunning grandeur. The Pyrenees have long been known as a Mecca for walkers and mountain scramblers, but they also offer excellent rock climbing in good weather, magnificent surroundings and with an almost total absence of crowds - at the time of writing. It is normal to have the route to oneself, common to have the face to oneself and occasionally the mountain also.

Hier findet man bedeutend mehr "Plaisir" als an den obengenannten Modefelsen. Dieses Tal, obwohl von allen Himmelsrichtungen gut erreichbar, ist immer noch ein Geheimtip.
In Italien sind Traversella und Sbarua schon lange keine Geheimtips mehr. Hier wird deutlich, was Plaisirstandard ist: Europe - Switzerland Number of routes: Plaisir - Charakter haben.

The American Alpine Club Pages: Google Description Introduction For many years, the imagination of most climbers could be cought by only a few famous cliffs and mountains.
But as the sport grew in popularity, climbers began searching out unheralded areas - places where they could explore new territory and leave behind some of the increasing crowds. Soon, they discovered that North America holds a great diversity of climbing areas, each unique in its climbing experience. This series of guides was conceived to provide an efficient sampling of many different North American climbing areas.
Based primarily on photographs, the books also offer selected route descriptions, access maps, and background information for each covered area. The Climber's Guide to North America will allow travelling climbers to experience for themselves the special character of these places through several days of excellent climbing.

Google Description Introduction The extensive mountain chain, the Himalayas stretches across the thick neck of the Indian sub-continent for about 1, miles, from Afghanistan in the west to Assam in the south-east.
Roughly to miles wide, it straddles six countries, dividing India from Tibet. Distinguished by enormous variety of climate, vegetation and wild life, the mountain chain consists of three major ranges: Lush tropical valleys and snow-capped peaks dominate the Himalayas and Karakorams, while the Hindu Kush in the far west lies beyond the reach of the monsoons and therefore has much bleaker slopes.
Google Description Introduction The justification of a climbing guide is to offer its users a quick and practical read, giving in the most efficient way all the necessary information for a successful ascent. The choice of a visual presentation by topo guides obeys these demands, offering a general appreciation of relief and of neighouring routes unobtainable with a simple description, especially with the number of modern routes, often very close to each another.
Giving grades, lining up numbers, adding up pitches or drawing in the background reliefs however are not sufficient to give a good idea of the atmosphereand particularities unique to each wall or each route. A special atmosphere that can only be described by humoristic frescos, sketches or the surroundings or watercolours by Samivel, but these specialities are so extraordinarily difficult to master, demanding such talent and artistic qualities, that it would not be reasonable to consider a generalised application.
The text simply regains all its charisma and editorial impact, were we crazy enough to imagine that we could forget about the text without unavoidably missing out on the true message. This little book speaks to us about granite, of gneiss also but especially of granite and it is a good occasion to show what this rock offers the climber familiar with limestone rocks. The Crowood Press Ltd Pages: In addition there are full details of the circuits at Fontainebleau, and over routes on the Southern Sandstone at Tunbridge Wells. With over maps and illustrations, this is an indispensable handbook for all rock climbers.
David Jones is an experiences rock climber and stills photographer and has climbed extensively throughout Europe. Foreword Welcome, and thank you for purchasing the first edition of this crag climbing guide to Europe. You now have at your fingertips crags and 58 topo diagrams from right across Europe. I have not included every crag there is for obvious reasons, most importantly because the book must go to print now to be ready in time for the season. Still, there is enough climbing here for about people over about years. I have tried to cover as wide an area as possible and in consequence the depth of information varies considerably.
France is very well represented since I have spent over two years there in total. My visits to Spain, Italy and Germany have been a bit more sporadic, so the amount of info on them is not so great. I have brought the whole of Europe into line by using the French grading system throughout; no doubt this will become the norm over the next 5 years. I have included topo diagrams for British crags since they are often unavailable and the ones that do exist have the British Stone Age grading system.
