CLICK HERE to download the first 50 pages from Climbing the Seven Summits

* First and only guidebook to climbing all Seven Summits
* Full color with 125 photographs and 24 maps including a map for each summit route
* Essential information on primary climbing routes and travel logistics for mountaineers, with historical and cultural anecdotes for armchair readers
Aconcagua. Denali. Elbrus. Everest. Kilimanjaro. Kosciuszko. Vinson. To a climber, these mountains are known as the Seven Summits* -- the highest peaks on each continent. If you've ever dreamed of climbing Denali or Everest, or joining the even more exclusive "Seven Summiters " club, then Climbing the Seven Summits is the guidebook you need to turn your dream into reality.

With Mike Hamill as your guide, you will discover different approaches to tackling the list, as well as details on what you'll need to plan an expedition and what to expect from each climb. For each mountain you'll learn about documents and immunizations, expedition costs, training, guiding options, climbing styles, best seasons, essential gear, day-by-day itineraries, summit routes, maps showing approaches and camps, regional natural history, cultural notes, and even post-climb activities like going on safari in Africa or wine-touring in South America.

Throughout you'll also find helpful and inspiring stories from the likes of Conrad Anker, Vern Tejas, Damien Gildea, Eric Simonson, and other famed climbers. Special insider tips from Hamill, based on his years of experience, as well as full-color photographs of each peak round out this collectible guidebook. And, because there remains some controversy about whether Kosciuszko in Australia or Carstenz Pyramid on the island of New Guinea is the "seventh summit," this guidebook to the Seven Summits actually covers eight mountains!

*Within mountaineering circles there is debate over which peaks are considered the official Seven Summits. For the purposes of this guidebook, the Seven Summits are based on the continental model used in Western Europe, the United States, and Australia, also referred to as the 'Bass list.'

About the Author:

MIKE HAMILL is a professional mountain guide, writer, and photographer.  He regularly leads expeditions to the mountains of the Seven Summits, among others, and has climbed all of the original Seven Summits at least four times, some as many as twenty. He has also climbed them all in the course of one year several times, finishing them in 2008 in 220 days, the tenth fastest time to date, and has been a featured climber on the Discovery Channel's television production titled Everest: Beyond the Limits. Originally from New England and with a B.S. from St. Lawrence University, Hamill has been guiding for more than a decade and calls Seattle, WA home when not on the road.

Review:

If you have your sights set on the Seven Summits - the highest point on each continent - you can do no better in print than a copy of Climbing the Seven Summits by Mike Hamill. (Action Asia)

Mike Hamill's consummate coverage of the Seven Summits is far more studied and detailed than anything I could have ever written. (Dick Bass, first person to climb the Seven Summits)

Descripción Mountaineers Books, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Aconcagua; Denali; Elbrus; Everest; Kilimanjaro; Kosciuszko; Vinson. To a climber, these mountains are known as the Seven Summits - the highest peaks on each continent. And from Antarctica to Alaska, Nepal to Tanzania, each year thousands of climbers from all over the world attempt at least one of them, while a growing number have plans to climb each and every mountain. Drawing on years of experience, veteran Seven Summit mountain guide Mike Hamill describes overall considerations for expedition planning and high-altitude trips, gear recommendations, tips on international travel and logistics, and estimates of financial costs. In-depth descriptions of each of the Seven Summits include a regional map, a map of the primary climbing route, a route overlay on a photo, and a sample climbing itinerary that covers peak-specific technical climbing tips and what to expect on summit day. Throughout Hamill s descriptions, renowned alpinists offer their own advice: Eric Simonson on Everest, Vern Tejas on Denali, and Melissa Arno on a female s perspective of expedition planning. Hamill also includes the other Seven Summit, the Carstensz Pyramid in New Guinea; climbing facts and figures for each peak; a history of the Seven Summits challenge; and a unique compare and contrast chart that reveals how the peaks stack up against each other. From the first steps of trip dreaming, to figuring out gear and plane tickets, to kicking those final, sublime steps up to the snowy top of Denali or Aconcagua - this is the one-and-only authoritative book to guide readers to all of the world s Seven Summits. Mike Hamill is a year-round guide for International Mountain Guides and the Alaska Mountaineering School. Professionally and personally, he has travelled and climbed extensively on all seven continents, including at least two times up each of the big Seven (including 40 times up Aconcagua, 10 times up Denali, and 5 times up Everest). Through the course of a year Hamill regularly guides clients up each of the Seven Summits, and with his IMG colleagues he was recently featured on the Discovery Channel s popular Everest: Beyond the Limit. He lives in Seattle. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9781594856488
