climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Jerry Moffatt - Revelations
Moffatt and Grimes have done climbing history a service in setting down the story of UK climbing in the “dole era” of the 1980s — a story that was quickly becoming forgotten. GRAND PRIZE WINNER - BANFF MOUNTAIN BOOK FESTIVAL 2009

Ron Fawcett - Rock Athlete
Ron Fawcett is a natural-born climber. In 1969, while still at school in his native Yorkshire, he tied into a climbing rope for the first time and was instantly hooked. From that moment on, it seemed nothing else in his life mattered nearly as much as his next vertical fix.

50 Years of Alpinism
“Riccardo Cassin has written a masterpiece of an autobiography—possibly the most important mountaineering book to be published in the last twenty-five years!"

Dougal Haston: The Philosophy of Risk
"Laconic Scottish hardman Dougal Haston rose from humble beginnings as a baker's son to become one of the "beautiful people" of fashionable 1970s Leysin, Switzerland."

Master of Rock: The Biography of John Gill
"The idea of someone who can climb levels harder than anyone else, which is what I had always heard about Gill, is completely intriguing. So when Master of Rock came out I was delighted and couldn't wait to read it (...)"

Climbing Free: My Life in the Vertical World
"My intent has been to describe the experiences that have most shaped my life and love for climbing - writes Lynn Hill as she introduces her autobiography. In 13 chapters this is what Lynn Hill has succeeded in doing."

Feeding the Rat
“Mo Anthoine is probably one of the most well-known British climbers to the climbing fraternity and yet a complete unknown to the general public, and this is just how he likes it."

The Wildest Dream: The Biography of George Mallory
"The book is a magnificent portrait of the most famous mountaineer in history, and certainly the most incisive dissection of his complex character that has yet been achieved. Better than all of that, it is beautifully written and compelling; a tribute to the journalistic craftsmanship of Peter Gilman."

We Aspired
"We Aspired appears twenty years after the last events it describes have taken place: events people, landscape, movement, and emotion percolating in memory for years, until Sinclair could find their essences in language. In this book the great days are recounted with a rare precision and grace commensurate to the task."

Reinhold Messner Free Spirit
"Free Spirit is a hammer blow to those of us who have not achieved our full potential, to those of us who have settled for less or wasted our talent on things we never really wanted in the first place."

Second Ascent: The Story of Hugh Herr
"Prepare to be alternately inspired, horrified, and—ultimately—impressed by Second Ascent. (...) the story of Hugh Herr is a memorable read on par with the best biographical literature written."

My Vertical World
"He was the second climber, after media star Reinhold Messner, to climb all 14 mountains in the Himalayan rosary of 8000-meter peaks. In My Vertical World, Jerzy Kukuczka reveals that he was indeed a very lucky climber, but also that he made his own luck through hard work, dogged determination, and inspired optimism. He was at once a singular, innovative, and unique adventurer."

On Edge: The Life
& Climbs of Henry Barber

“Henry Barber will almost certainly be remembered as the outstanding international rock climber of the 1970's. I say rock climber because, with respect for his adventures elsewhere in the mountains, it was on rock that Henry made his mark."

Beyond the Vertical
"Beyond the metaphorical vertical is a place where the search for oneself, the achievement of excellence, the desire for risk, and the struggle for survival become indistinguishably interwoven. Through topologically fertile landscapes, Layton Kor visited this place with an intensity that was rare..."

Gervasutti's Climbs
"A facsimile reprint of the original 1957 translation of Gervasutti's autobiography. Unavailable for some years this is a worthwhile classic to reprint as the climbs done by Gervasutti were way ahead of their time..."
