Description
The language in which the material is written opens an additional window into the special male climbing world of 20 years ago. For large climbing collections. Library Journal Review John Long's favorite climbing literature . John Long is one of climbing's best selling authors. Everything from his literary works, including Gorilla Monsoon, to his instructional efforts, How To Rock Climbing and videos he's appeared in have been best selling efforts in the outdoor industry.

His Midas touch for good literature is demonstrated here in his editing ability. ICS has given John full reign to choose stories that explore the psyche of traditional and modern climbers. From leading 5.13 pitches to marital struggles, John has selected stories that will introduce the non-climber to the excitement climbers live off and stories that will make the seasoned alpinist nervous.The stories have been chosen for their literary integrity, provoking a wide range of emotions.
