The Ancient Historian

Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

Training for the new alpinism

Finally, my copy of Steve House and Scott Johnson’s Training for the New Alpinism. A Manual for the Climber as Athlete, Patagonia Books, 2014, has arrived. It treats the climber as an athlete, and differentiates types of climbing/specific training. I especially like the Alpine versus big mountain mountaineering distinctions in it. And fantastic photos throughout the book. More anon. But at first glance this looks like a book every climber will have, and continue to read.
