I like this book because it strays from the traditional realm of climbing books. There is no tragedy or drama. The focus is not only very difficult innovative new routes and the challenges surrounding the climbs, but it also tackles the challenges of family life and the reality of the world we live in. Yates is a great observer and his writing is fluid and insightful, neither macho nor verbose but exacting. Not only is Yates an exceptional climber, he is an exceptional writer too.
