The annual American Alpine Journal (AAJ), now in its 84th year, documents the world’s most significant climbs and expeditions.

* For the first time in its history, the AAJ is in full color!
* Feature articles by the world’s leading climbers, including Alex Honnold, Freddie Wilkinson, Adam Ondra, Mike Libecki, and many more.
* In-depth “Recon” section on the Revelation Mountains in Alaska, one of North America’s least-known ranges
* Expanded coverage of climbs in the United States!

Published annually since 1929, the American Alpine Journal is internationally renowned as the world’s “journal of record” for major climbs of all kinds. Feature articles include the most compelling stories, told by the climbers themselves. In Climbs & Expeditions, great ascents are documented from Antarctica to Afghanistan and from Patagonia to Pakistan.

This year, the AAJ is in full color for the first time in its 84-year history, with some significant design enhancements. There is also twice as much coverage of climbs in the United States — more stories about climbs close to home! Included with this coverage will be a major story about the history, recent climbing, and new-route potential of southern California’s popular Mt. Whitney area.

The American Alpine Club is the leading organization representing climbers in the United States. They provide knowledge and inspiration, conservation and advocacy, and logistical support for the climbing community.  Veteran climbing journalist Dougald MacDonald is editor in chief of The American Alpine Journal.
