Vantage Point

50 Years of the Best Climbing Stories Ever Told

Book Description

For nearly 50 years, Climbing Magazine’s goal has been to inspire and entertain with compelling coverage of climbing in all its forms, from bouldering to the big walls, trad rock to sport climbing, ice climbing to mountaineering. Vantage Point offers a collection of the most inspiring, thought-provoking, and humorous stories featured in Climbing over the past five decades—an anthology that will move you to grab your chalkbag, rope, and harness.
