From Edward Whymper's conquest of the Matterhorn in 1865 to the development of modern rock-climbing in the late 19th Century and the first ascent of Everest in 1953, the "Guardian" has avidly covered the subject of mountaineering and climbing. From articles on scrambling and fell-running to debates on the commercialisation of the sport and the growth in the number of women climbers, this is a beautiful and fascinating collection. Among the many unsigned leaders, letters and reports from around the globe are pieces written by the "Guardian's" more distinguished contributors, including James Morris, Jim Perrin and Harry Griffin.
