Published annually since 1929, the American Alpine Journal, which documents the world's most significant climbs, has earned the international reputation as the finest publication of its kind. In addition to reports of the most cutting-edge expeditions and climbs of the year, the AAJ delivers detailed route information and feature stories covering big new routes and unexplored potential.
The 2014 Journal, printed in full color, documents Ueli Steck's solo of the south face of Annapurna, Scott Adamson's triumph on the Moose's Tooth, and more. This year's edition also features recon on unexplored mountains in Burma, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, and Tierra del Fuego. Closer to home, Jonathan Siegrist discusses the future of sport climbing in the U.S., and we explore the domestic untapped potential of the Sierra Nevada and the Rockies.
