This years giveaway is for one of Patagonia’s newest books: The newly released linen-bound hardcover Climbing Fitz Roy, 1968: Reflections on the Lost Photos of the Third Ascent retails for $35.
Through rare photos and personal essays, Climbing Fitz Roy, 1968 tells the tale of a six-month excursion to Patagonia, Chile, that changed the lives of five rock climbers dubbed the “Funhogs”—Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia), Doug Tompkins (founder of The North Face/Esprit), Dick Dorworth, Chris Jones and Lito Tejada-Flores. The 1968 Fitz Roy climb would impact the environmental movement and outdoor industry for years to come.

I recently received this book, and it is a book that begs to be left out and handled, rather than put on a book shelf. It’s simply beautiful. It is filled with photos, and given the era, it really puts the reader into the time and space of this climb. If you are looking for a Christmas present, it’s well worth the look.

We will select a winner on Christmas day– Merry Christmas to one of our readers! We will stop taking entries at midnight on Christmas Eve, and randomly select a winner after that. Good luck to all!
