A Guide for Climbers, 4th edition


This is the 4th English edition of the only comprehensive climbing guidebook to the peaks of the Andes. It covers many areas not described in any other source. This new edition has expanded coverage of the whole range, with many new photos and route diagrams plus extended coverage of the ski-mountaineering opportunities in the Andes.

The book contains details of how to climb all 100 of the major 6000m peaks in the Andes, plus route information for approximately 300 other peaks. There are over 240 route diagrams, 150 additional photos and 80 sketch maps. Previous editions of this book have been translated into French, Spanish, Polish and Czech.

The author, John Biggar, is a world renowned expert on climbing in the Andes. He has been climbing and skiing in the Andes for 25 years and in that time has run more than seventy mountaineering, trekking and skiing expeditions and has made ascents of over 300 peaks higher than 5000m.
