Jammed with photos and maps, the annual American Alpine Journal (AAJ) is the world’s most comprehensive and respected source for information about major new climbs and expeditions.

• The AAJ goes beyond blogs, Facebook posts, and video clips with in-depth reports on major climbs, written by the climbers themselves.

• Our “Recon” section covers the history, recent climbing activity, and new-route potential of a wild area. This year: the big granite walls of the Cirque of the Unclimbables in Canada.

• The 2017 edition is dedicated to Jeff Lowe, with an exclusive essay by this visionary climber.

Published annually since 1929, the American Alpine Journal is renowned as the world’s journal of record for major climbs. The AAJ publishes each year’s most compelling climbing stories, told by the climbers themselves. In Climbs & Expeditions, we document the year’s greatest first ascents, from Alaska to Afghanistan, and from Patagonia to Pakistan.
