On the look out for some skiing gear, I accidentally entered the wrong shop and ended up in the neighboring store where they sold equipment for other outdoor sports. "Where are all the ski's?" I thought as I came across a shelf lined with books on a familiar yet in my mind neglected subject; climbing. I used to do some indoor climbing and bouldering at a gym, but the book covers of real deal rock climbers caught my immediate attention. This one in particular was hard to let go of. A few introduc ...more

It is most certainly not a book for non-climbers. The endless lists of E7's, E8's, 8c's, 5.13's would test the patience of even the most enthuastic non-climbing reader. But it is a fascinating trip down memory lane and the golden age of climbing, not only sportclimbing, but climbing in general, for those of us who only followed the likes of Jerry Moffatt, and many of the other stars of the 80's, that he gives little oblique insights into, because of our interest in more traditional climbs, big w ...more

Unable to put it down. Probably crap if you are not a climber reading about one of your climbing heros.

a good book for climbers

It's more than a bit of an egofest, but I suppose 'the best climber in the world' is entitled to show off, in writing as well as in his climbing. Jerry's real 'personal' life is very low key relative to his climbing tales, but does serve to make the book more human when you finally get to that stage. Recommended for climbers who might remember Jerry's name from the climbing magazines, but I'm not sure that non-climbers would appreciate not-very-gripping tales of E7s and F8b+.

Very enjoyable jaunt through the highlights of the career of one of the top climbers of the last 25years. Jerry's confidence, persistence, and passion for climbing reaffirm my own experiences with the lifestyle. I particularly liked the passages concerning the mental training necessary to succeed on hard ascents: "smooth, focused agression."

Great account of how the departure from regular climbing of the sixties and early seventies in Europe came to be. I wish I was young one more time ...
