Editorial Reviews

Review

“The 2nd edition of Freedom of the Hills jump-started my climbing education. The manual’s content has kept pace with the evolution of the sport and should be considered mandatory reading for every mountain climber. This truly remarkable resource has no equal in any language.” -- Mark Twight

“It is fair to say that
Freedom is the definitive guide to mountains and climbing.” -- Conrad Anker

“A notorious reference for climbers and outdoor enthusiasts!” -- Lynn Hill

“The lessons I learned in the Mountaineers climbing course in 1945 stood me on the summit of Mount Everest in 1963. To see that knowledge put into a book was wonderful. That it has evolved into the best book on climbing, updated by active climbers, is remarkable. I have told many people, including my sons, ‘If you want to climb mountains, read
Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills. Then read it again so you know, for sure, how to get down.’ ” -- Jim Whittaker

"The One Book Every New Climber Should Read",
Gripped Magazine

“In my early years of heading into the mountains I used
Freedom of the Hills to learn how to calculate fuel needs for the backcountry, to study crevasse rescue, and in general to just muse about the alpine craft. Everyone should have a copy of this standard tome.” -- Kit DesLauriers

“A ‘must have’ for any aspiring mountaineer’s library.” -- Ed Viesturs

“If the mountains are my church, then
Freedom is my bible. . . . As a very young climber I read it cover to cover, then dug through it again and again for nuggets of wisdom. I still do.” -- Will Gadd

"It is fair to say that
Freedom is the definitive guide to mountain and climbing." -- Conrad Anker

Freedom is truly the Everest of mountaineering texts and a great preparation for a life wandering among high hills, including the big one itself.” -- Tom Hornbein

Freedom does a remarkable job of staying not just current, but on the cutting edge. Turning on new climbers to this resource is one of the best things I can do to prepare them for life in the big hills.” -- Dave Hahn

“Not long after I learned to read, I would grip the flashlight in my teeth and stay awake late into the night scouring my parent’s copy of the 3rd edition of
Freedom of the Hills. . . . What this book captured, what it meant, what it hinted at that was so crucial to my fascination with mountaineering was this: Freedom, itself, was the most important thing. Freedom to explore who I am. Freedom afforded by learned skills to explore any mountain wilderness. Freedom to move, to climb. It’s what still drives me today.” -- Steve House

The Mountaineers is a nonprofit outdoor community of 12,000+ active members in the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 1906, we've been getting people of all ages outside safely and responsibly for over 100 years. We host hundreds of monthly courses and activities - all led by our coalition of volunteers - to offer ways to get outside and connect with people passionate about the outdoors. We think it's important to introduce people to the outdoors early and often, and we work to protect the outdoor experience for future generations.

Mission: "To enrich the community by helping people explore, conserve, learn about, and enjoy the lands and waters of the Pacific Northwest and beyond."
