Nearly twenty years in the making, The Climbers by photographer Jim Herrington shares a stunning collection of portraits of icons in mountaineering — from Beckey, Cassin, and Diemberger to Messner, Robbins, and Wickwire, rugged individualists who, from roughly the 1920s to 1970s, used primitive gear along with their considerable wits, talent, and fortitude to tackle challenging climbs around the world. The Climbers was recently awarded the Banff Mountain Book Competition’s Mountaineering History Award.
