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

Revelations 

by Jerry Moffatt (with Niall Grimes)


Vertebrate Publishing; Sheffield, 2009, 242 pages

Grand Prize at the 2009 Banff Mountain Book Festival

"Jerry Moffatt burst onto the scene as a brash 17-year-old, rock climbing had never seen anyone like him before. Fiercely ambitious, even as a boy Moffatt was focused on one thing: being the best in the world. This is the story of his meteoric rise to stardom, and how he overcame injury to stay at the top for over two decades. Top sport climber, brilliant competitor and a pioneer in the new game of bouldering, Moffatt's story is that of climbing itself in the last thirty years."
UKClimbing

"The book charts the story of Jerry’s meteoric rise to rock climbing stardom in the 1980s, and how he overcame injury to stay at the top for over two decades. Many consider Jerry’s story to be that of climbing itself in the last thirty years. Travelling the world to fulfil his dreams, Jerry’s story is a compelling and often hilarious account of the climbing community with all its glories, dangers and foibles, as well as the story of a true sporting legend."
Climbing Magazine

"Revelations shines with elfin charm and great candor: about wanting to be the best; wanting to impress top climbers when he knew they were watching; and because, as Moffatt once put it, “I like burning people off.” Clearest of all is that he truly loved climbing."
Alison Osius, Rock&Ice
