About this title


With over 140 full-color photos, this book illustrates the celebration of free climbing by two of the sport's greatest exponents. Glowacz and Wiesmeier demonstrate state-of-the-art techniques in the world's premier climbing areas, capturing the awesome majesty of peaks on four continents as well as their harrowing experiences among them.


Flip through the book and you see lots of shots of people inching up vast, vertical slabs of rock. Look more closely and you find a discussion of rock climbing in England, France, Japan, Australia, Germany and the USA. The pictures are absolutely astounding, while the text gives a personal account of how all these rocks differ from one another, of their unique challenges and beauty. It's a remarkable book, of equal interest to travelers, climbers and acrophobes.
