Mountaineering in Antarctica

Climbing in the Frozen South, Damien Gildea


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.).
