Fifty Favorite Climbs: The Ultimate North American Tick List celebrates the accomplishments of today's most talented and prolific climbers. Based on in-person interviews by climbing journalist Mark Kroese, it showcases each climber's all-time favorite route. These are climbs each considers to be ultra classic. Climbs they recommend to their closest friends. Climbs they repeat just for fun. These are "the climbs to do," and they are collected here to inspire you. Fifty Favorite Climbs presents fifty classic rock and alpine routes in fifty chapters. Each chapter creates the complete climbing experience in four parts: a revealing climber profile, including a summary of his or her greatest accomplishments, insights into training regimes and climbing philosophies, and personal anecdotes; the story behind the climb and why it is that climber's favorite - recounting some of the greatest moments and dramatic ascents of this generation; a detailed route description provided by the climber, most including a personal "topo" map (many published here for the first time); and full-color photos by Corey Rich, Galen Rowell, Bradford Washburn, Gordon Wiltsie, and others among the "who's who" of outdoor photographers.

In 1977, well-respected climbing gurus Bob Godfrey and Dudley Chelton self-published Climb! Rock Climbing in Colorado. The first climbing book of its kind, Climb! detailed Colorado climbing history and suggested a new set of challenges for those fascinated by life on the edge. In addition, Greg Epperson's photography introduced wide-angle drama and on-rappel images. Twenty-five years later, Chelton has teamed up with former Climbing magazine photo editor and climber Jeff Achey to recapture the original book's influence and impact for a new generation of climbers.

Shortlisted: 2016 Banff Mountain Book Competition ‘1001 Climbing Tips had me laughing out loud in places, which I never thought possible for this genre of book. A tremendous resource that should be an essential addition to every climber’s loo-library’ – Ian Parnell, Climb magazine Imagine an alien came down to Earth, stuck a probe into a climber’s brain – one who’d been climbing for over thirty years – and then transmogrified the contents into a big book of climbing tips. Well, 1001 Climbing Tips by Andy Kirkpatrick is just such a book. This is no regular instruction manual – it’s much more useful than that. This is a massive collection of all those little tips that make a real difference when at the crag, in the mountains, or when you’re planning your next big trip. It’s for anyone who hangs off stuff, or just hangs around in the mountains. These tips are based on three decades of climbing obsession, as well as nineteen ascents of El Cap, numerous Alpine north faces, trips to the polar ice caps, and many other scary climbs and expeditions. 1001 Climbing Tips covers the following areas: BASICS [1–240]: From how best to rope up and the importance of climbing partnerships, to racking your gear correctly and how to sleep in a harness. This section is designed for both novice and experienced climbers. SAFETY [241–327]: The name of the game in climbing is staying alive and coming home in one piece. This section covers loose rock, rescue, dealing with heat and what to do if you get caught out. BIG WALL [328–434]: Knowledge on tackling large multi-pitch climbs, with advanced topics such as pegging, jumaring, hauling and speed climbing. These tips will be an aid both to those new to multi-pitch climbing, as well as more experienced climbers. ICE [435–481]: Tips on all aspects of ice climbing, including movement, protection, looking after your gear, mental strength and – of course – not falling off. MIXED [482–503]: With a focus on Scottish and Alpine winter skills, these essential tips focus on how to use your tools on snowed-up rock, leading, gear and footwork on mixed ground. MOUNTAIN [504–802]: Essential reading for mountaineers, hill walkers and rock climbers, this section has almost 300 tips on living and staying alive in the mountains, be that in the UK, Alps or Greater Ranges. TRAINING [803–876]: A range of tips on how to overcome fear, improve strength and endurance, as well as diet and nutrition advice for climbers. STUFF [877–1001]: A mix of esoterica, such as how to rap off a fifi hook, what books to read, how to make your own kit, how to get sponsored, photo and video advice, and how to go to the toilet in tricky spots.
