Overview

Since the conquest of Everest in 1953, mountaineering has attracted increasing numbers of followers. Its growth is second only to whitewater rafting in participation sports.

Improvements in techniques and equipment have helped men and women achieve goals that would have been unattainable in an earlier day.

James Ramsey Ullman, a fine climber himself, celebrated mountaineering as a physical and spiritual adventure. He sees in nature the antidote to civilized stress and believes we grow best out-of-doors.
