Synopsis: Big, high routes at the edge of a climber's ability are not the places for inventing technique or relying on old habits. Complacency can lead to fatal errors. So where does the hard-core aspirant or dreamer turn? The only master class in print, Extreme Alpinism delivers an expert dose of reality and practical techniques for advanced climbers.

Focusing on how top alpine climbers approach the world's most difficult routes, Twight centers his instruction on the ethos of climbing the hardest routes with the least amount of gear and the most speed. Throughout, Twight makes it clear that the two things he refuses to compromise are safety and his climbing ethics. In addition to the extensive chapters on advanced techniques and skills, Twight also discusses mental preparedness and attitude; strength and cardiovascular training; good nutrition; and tips on equipment and clothing.

Illustrated throughout with full-color photos.

About the Author: Marc Twight is one of America's leading alpinists. His routes in Asia, North America, and the Alps have stretched the limits of the possible. Many remain unrepeated. His gripping accounts and vertiginous images of climbing at the edge have been published in leading magazines around the world. He lives in Boulder, Colorado. James Martin is a free-lance writer and photographer whose work has appeared in Smithsonian, Sports Illustrated, Climbing, Outside, and a host of other publications. The author of several books, Martin is also an experienced climber who has established first ascents in the U.S. and Canada. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
