It was a long time ago when the Ten Essentials was assembled by the Mountaineers, a Seattle-based organization for climbers and outdoor adventurers. This because Ten Essentials assembling dates back to Mountaineers climbing courses in the 1930s.
Then appeared for the first time in January 1974 in the third edition of Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills.
The Freedom of the Hills was written entirely by volunteers, and the Mountaineers released the 9th edition in November 2017.
Someone could say that the 10 Essentials steal precious space in their backpack adding weight, but fortunately you’ll never fully appreciate the value of the Ten Essentials until you need one of them, because essential equipment can be a lifesaver in an emergency.
We have analyzed the 10 Essentials list giving to it an infographic vest to help you visually remember all the items.
