American Alpine Journal 2010


Published annually since 1929, the American Alpine Journal is internationally renowned as the finest publication of its kind—the world's “journal of record” for documenting significant climbs. In the Feature Stories we hear from those who have made many of the most impressive first ascents of the year: the big routes that will become tomorrow's legends. In Climbs & Expeditions we discover what else has happened in almost all the world's mountains. The 2010 edition is 400 pages long.
This is edition features “spreads” rather than single pages.
See the table of contents below.


This volume features “double-page spreads” instead of the usual single pages. This will display differently. It may require zooming to read the text.
