The finalists for the 14th annual Banff Mountain Book Festival have been announced. This year's competition received 113 entries from 9 countries competing in the following categories:

Best Book - Mountain Literature Best Book - Mountain Image Best Book - Mountain Exposition Best Book - Adventure Travel Best Book - Mountaineering History

The field of 113 was narrowed down to 27 finalists with a few entries that will be of interest to RC.com users. In the literature category Pete Takeda's An Eye at the Top of The World and Steph Davis' High Infatuation are both finalists.

In the Exposition category Long time RC.com poster Douglas Hunter's The Self-Coached Climber is a finalist. The Self-Coached Climber was a finalist for a National Outdoor Book Award last year but did not win, so hopes are high for Banff.

The festival runs from October 27 thought November 4th, and includes a long list of events and appearances.
