Description :

xxviii,291 pages, well illustrated, cloth, very good. 1st edition. From the preface: "There are four major sub-areas of mountaineering, all of which Henry Barber has participated in. The best known is called expeditionary mountaineering ~ a second sub-area, growing out of the first to some extent, is rock climbing ~ The third sub-area of mountaineering is ice climbing. ~ Alpine mountaineering is the ascent of peaks or large faces requiring both rock and ice climbing, as in the Alps." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, "Henry Barber (Born 1953 in Boston Massachusetts) was a leading American rock climber and ice climber in the 1970s. Known by the nickname "Hot Henry", Barber was an advocate of clean climbing, a prolific first ascentionist and free soloist. He was one of the first American rock climbers to travel widely to climb in different countries. Barber was also one of the first "professional" American rock climbers, supporting himself as a "gear rep" for outdoor equipment companies, and by giving lectures and slide shows. He was an integral member of the "Leading Four" quartet of the 1970s: Henry, John Stannard, Steve Wunsch, and John Bragg". N° de réf. du libraire 19539
