Yvon Chouinard et al

Written by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, Climbing Fitzroy, 1968: Reflections on the Lost Photos of the Third Ascent is a reflection on the six-month excursion Chouinard took to Patagonia, Chile in the late ‘60s. Known as the influential journey that helped shape the development of his famous outdoor clothing brand, he was joined by a team of friends who made history after completing the descent, and continue to inspire future generations to protect the world's natural environments. The tale is told across 138 pages printed on 100% recycled paper which are enhanced by a collection of 90 images, and bound within a textural brown hardcover.

Inspiring for anyone with an interest in travel, climbing or the great outdoors this book is sure to influence future plans whilst inspiring the protection of nature. Starting their journey at a beachside shack in Ventura, California, the team of climbers, skiiers and surfers included Yvon Chouinard, Doug Tompkins, Dick Dorworth and Chris Jones who all lucked out on one of history’s greatest road trips in 1968.
