Published annually since 1929, the American Alpine Journal has earned international repute as the finest publication of its kind. In addition to reports of the most cutting-edge expeditions and climbs of the year, the AAJ delivers detailed route information and feature stories covering big new routes and unexplored potential.
AAJ 2016 features ground-breaking climbs in Nepal, India, Canada, Pakistan, and Patagonia, plus an in-depth look at the history and climbing potential of Alaska’s Neacola Mountains.

AAJ 2016 also has the largest section on climbing in the United States in our 89-year-history—more new climbs close to home! Whether you're planning an expedition or dreaming about your next long weekend, the American Alpine Journal is essential reading.
