Climbing would not have achieved its current level without ongoing developments in clothing and equipment. The authors take us behind the scenes in the progression of these items from the Victorian era to today. What makes this book intriguing is that it’s not just about the gear but also the famous names who shaped it – Berghaus, Blacks, Burberry, Gore, Karrimor, Lawrie, Mallory, Mountain Equipment, Mummery, Nansen, Parsons, Salewa, Scott, Shipton, Smythe, Whillans, Whymper, and others.
