"This year's American Alpine Journal features Freddie Wilkinson and his all-star partners discovering still-unclimbed summits and awesome new routes in a remote corner of the Alaska Range. Pakistan's fabled Charakusa Valley keeps producing stunning long rock routes and jaw-dropping alpine test pieces, as revealed by Steve House, Nicolas Favresse, and partners. Even the Alps, where the sport began, keeps dishing out new challenges, including Miha Valic's tour de force: all 82 ""official"" 4,000-meter summits in a 102-day winter season. Peter Hackett reports on the latest knowledge in high-altitude physiology, while Roger Payne provides an overview of current activities and the future potential of new-routing in Sikkim. Plus more from Peru, Patagonia, and Yosemite."
