This eagerly awaited fifth edition of Cicerone's highly successful "Winter Climbs in the Cairngorms" guide has been completely updated by the author - climber and instructor Allen Fyffe. The major climbing areas in the Cairngorms provide some of the finest winter climbing in Britain. From the remote corries of Braeriach and Beinn a'Bhuird to the magnificent cliffs of Lochnagar and Creag an Dubh Loch and the readily accessible Northern corries of Cairngorm, every aspect of winter climbing is to be found. There are long, varied routes and short technical test-pieces; there are pure ice climbs and buttress and mixed routes to rival any in the country. Building on previous editions of the guide, a selection of the best routes in each area has been suggested. Where possible a selection of routes of all grades have been given with, where there is a choice, a few routes at around the same standard to allow for some choice should conditions or availability dictate a change. When weather, conditions and climb are right, the Cairngorms can offer an unforgettable experience.

* Adventure memoir from a renowned winter climber at the top of his game * Moro reflects on some of his most significant climbs * A bestseller in Italy, this is the first English-language edition of Moro’s story Simone Moro is a celebrated Italian alpinist who specializes in winter climbing: He holds the record for first winter ascents of 8000-meter peaks——Shisha Pangma, Makalu, and Gasherbrum II. A passionate climber, he is also an accomplished helicopter pilot and founder of a helicopter rescue program in Nepal. The Call of the Ice was written during Moro’s dramatic winter attempt on Nanga Parbat in 2012——his twelfth attempt on that mountain——during weather delays and other breaks in the climb. Moro reflects on past climbs and partners, including the death of his longtime friend and climbing partner, Anatoli Boukreev, on Annapurna, his mourning when Boukreev died, and his subsequent recovery; Denis Urubko and the nature of climbing partnerships; two attempts on Shisha Pangma; Broad Peak; Makalu; and Gasherbrum II, which he, Urubko, and Cory Richards completed in February 2011 despite near-tragic moments when they miraculously escaped after being swept away by an avalanche. Many of Moro’s climbs do not result in a summit and he explains why his interest lies in the attempt itself. In addition to these reflections, we relive in real-time his attempt on Nanga Parbat, which he and Urubko had to abandon after 51 days and 6600 meters! “I will go in winter. Again. Yes in winter. Just because it’s my dream. Just because exploration never ends.” – Simone Moro

* Will Gadd is an ESPN X Games and Ice World Cup winner* There are 1.1 million ice climbers in the U.S. (Outdoor Industry Association, 2001)* Seventh installment in The Mountaineers Outdoor Expert series"Mixed climbing is my favorite discipline.

Here the champion ice climber presents the same techniques and veteran wisdomhe imparts to those who attend his annual clinics. These include step-by-step instructions for the swing (ice axe), the kick (footwork), and putting it all together (tracking); how to "read" ice to select your line and follow it safely; and drytool techniques for mixed climbing. Training exercises and inspirational stories complete this seminal guide. Will Gadd won every major ice competition in the world in 1998 and 1999, as well as the 2000 Ice World Cup. A resident of Canmore, Alberta, hehas written for Climbing and Rock & Ice, among other publications.
