Mountaineering in Antarctica - Damien Gildea - Editions Nevicata

Antarctica is home to one of the greatest collections of unclimbed mountains on earth, but Antarctica is not unexplored. The mountains of Antarctica have a rich human history that spans a century and features some of the greatest names in the annals of exploration and mountaineering - Shackleton, Tilman, Hillary, Bonatti, Messner and many stars of modern alpinism have all been drawn South.

The climbing in this other world traverses the vast empty ranges of the Transantarctic Mountains, past the soaring rock spires of Queen Maud Land, across the roof of the continent in the Sentinel Range, winding along the complex beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula and on up to the storm swept island of South Georgia.


This illustrated book is the first to introduce the reader - climbers and non-climbers alike - to the numerous mountain ranges, summits and remote inland regions of the Antarctic. This is a book intended for mountain and travel lovers interested in discovering what is probably the largest unexplored stretch of land on the planet. For the first time, readers will be able to contemplate the hidden treasures of the great South and discover its most remote mountain regions.

The publication focuses on the mountains of Antarctica and will appeal to a wider public than strictly climbers by including numerous descriptions of the mountain ranges' geography and glaciology; exploration and travel history; profiles of adventurers; climbers and sailors; many anecdotes; practical information, etc.

Being a mountaineering book, it also contains unique practical information intended for all who plan an expedition in these regions (technical data; routes; approaches; equipment; transport, etc.).
