Because it's There - Highclimber

Analog readers liked this so much they voted it Cover of the Year. The theme is climbing on another planet whose mountains are so high they reach out into space itself. Climbers would need special gear that recycles all their bodily fluids.
"This is what I thought some of the gear might look like. I had great fun designing it and my only doubt about such a suit is - what do you do about an intching nose?"

Taken from the Art book Alien Horizons, compiling the best of Bob Eggleton
