Description

Excerpt from Mountain Climbing The attitude of the world in general toward mountain climbing has undergone several curious changes. The ancients looked upon the mountains with indifference. The great peaks failed either to tempt the adventurer or to inspire the writer. Throughout the Middle Ages the mountains were regarded with fear and terror, so that for centuries no one ven tured to climb even the lower peaks. Only in the last century have men lost their terror of the mountains, and found the courage and am bition to climb their Sides.
