* First and only guidebook to climbing all Seven Summits
* Full color with 125 photographs and 24 maps including a map for each summit route
* Essential information on primary climbing routes and travel logistics for mountaineers, with historical and cultural anecdotes for armchair readers

Aconcagua. Denali. Elbrus. Everest. Kilimanjaro. Kosciuszko. Vinson. To a climber, these mountains are known as the Seven Summits* -- the highest peaks on each continent. If you've ever dreamed of climbing Denali or Everest, or joining the even more exclusive "Seven Summiters " club, then Climbing the Seven Summits is the guidebook you need to turn your dream into reality.

With Mike Hamill as your guide, you will discover different approaches to tackling the list, as well as details on what you'll need to plan an expedition and what to expect from each climb. For each mountain you'll learn about documents and immunizations, expedition costs, training, guiding options, climbing styles, best seasons, essential gear, day-by-day itineraries, summit routes, maps showing approaches and camps, regional natural history, cultural notes, and even post-climb activities like going on safari in Africa or wine-touring in South America.

Throughout you'll also find helpful and inspiring stories from the likes of Conrad Anker, Vern Tejas, Damien Gildea, Eric Simonson, and other famed climbers. Special insider tips from Hamill, based on his years of experience, as well as full-color photographs of each peak round out this collectible guidebook. And, because there remains some controversy about whether Kosciuszko in Australia or Carstenz Pyramid on the island of New Guinea is the "seventh summit," this guidebook to the Seven Summits actually covers eight mountains!

*Within mountaineering circles there is debate over which peaks are considered the official Seven Summits. For the purposes of this guidebook, the Seven Summits are based on the continental model used in Western Europe, the United States, and Australia, also referred to as the 'Bass list.'

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I can't believe this hasn't been done before.... 4 juillet 2012
Par V O'Brien - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Coffee table books on the highest peaks - check. Stories of suspense, tragedies, and life-threatening adventures - one need only spend an hour in Stanford's in London or Pilgrims in Kathmandu to be overwhelmed by the selection available. But a comprehensive guide to actually climbing the highest peaks... well, that didn't exist - until now.

This book is incredible and has all the right bits. Whether you are actually planning on climbing the Seven Summits or want your mates and family to know all about it this is the perfect companion. Part 1 helps you prepare and plan your expedition while Part II breaks it all down giving the reader a comprehensive guide to each mountain. There is also a great comparison chart that tells you every thing from the altitude to difficulty ratings across each mountain as well as practical information like country telephone codes and the currency. Each chapter breaks down the different climbing routes, costs, suggested itineraries, maps, suggested gear and other useful training tips.

The book is supported by a website (...) that also offers additional information and advice. This is exactly the kind of book I have been searching for as I start the seven summits. It's been helpful to me in planning my trips and for those close to me to know what I am embarking upon. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive guide book with beautiful photographs! 6 juillet 2012
Par Angela M Serio - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is by far the most comprehensive book ever written about climbing the Seven Summits. This is a MUST READ for anyone considering to attempt it, not to mention anyone who has an interest in mountaineering. Makes a great coffee table for those less adventurous types, too. The photography is spectacular and really brings to life each peak in a way that no other guide book generally does. The book is full of interesting factoids and history about climbing each of the Seven Summits. The author leaves no detail untouched, complete with gear lists and sample itineraries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the World's Top Climbers Provides the Benefit of his Knowledge and Experience 28 janvier 2015

I have been on climbs with Mike Hamill on Mount Elbrus (Europe) and Vinson Massif (Antarctica). Mike is one of the top mountain guides & climbers in the world today. He shares a lot of his extensive experience and expertise in this book. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in climbing any of the seven summits. (I have done four of the summits so far and Mike's book is a good source for planning.) If you really want an experience, go climb with Mike. He is a climbing machine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for anyone who has climbed or wants to climb 5 juillet 2012
Par Becky B - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I initially ordered the book because Mike was my guide on a climb of Kilimanjaro and I thought it would be interesting to read about this particular mountain. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of detail Mike goes into on his coverage of each of the seven/eight summits. I recommend this book to anyone who has climbed smaller peaks and dreams of those ultimate seven summits around the world or for anyone who simply has an interest in geography. Mike covers not only the climbs themselves but the culture of climbing and provides some wonderful color photographs so the reader has a good sense of what was climb entails.

Reading this book has strengthened my interest in climbing and I know I'll use it as a guide to determine what summit I should attempt next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-read for all past, present and aspiring Seven Summit climbers 6 juillet 2013
Par Louis Carstens - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Mike Hamill is a world-class mountaineering guide, hugely experienced with multiple summits of Everest and the other mountains comprising the Seven Summits. Mike's hands-on, practical experience and expertise in the world of mountaineering provide a credible back-drop for this highly enjoyable read. The book is well-written, informative, but overall, practical. It is a book for mountaineering enthusiasts past and present, amateurs and professionals and armchair travellers alike.

This is the one book that has it all for the Seven Summits climber: detailed information about each mountain, beautiful photographs, practical tips, gear lists, route information, and much more. Mike provides an informative lead-in and scene-setting before discussing each mountain. A discussion on Kosciuszko vs. Carstensz Pyramid as the Seventh Summit makes for interesting reading.

For those who either want to climb the Seven Summits or who are currently pursuing this ambition - Mike's book is a must. For those who have completed the Seven Summits, Mike's book will bring back wonderful memories. And for those armchair climbers out there - this book will make you dream.
