Product Description

Review

"This is literature about the soul of alpinism, not a blow-by blow account of dumbing drudgery from some tourist peak bagger."

Format: Hardcover
The book is a collection of articles published previously in climbing magazines. However they have never all been universally available and the have been edited to ensure not upsetting individuals or advertisers. This volume brings them all together with no cuts. They all have an author's note, detailing the thoughts behind each article. It is well written and does not contain any of the dry descriptions of events that some expedition books have.
The book is based in the Alps, Himalayas and North America. They revolve around his experiences as a result of his method of climbing - carrying little gear, no real bivi equipment and as a result of this virtually non-stop climbing.
In some ways it is rather disturbing, how can a man who has had 40 friends die as a result of climbing, had broken relationships as a result of climbing and has limited contact with his family as a result of climbing --keep on climbing? He is clearly very talented - most of his new climbs in the Alps have not had a complete second ascent. What comes across is that he has a burning desire to climb, almost at the result of anything else. It is as if by writing he is finding a release about some of the events in his life.

A good read and certainly interesting for anyone who is involved in climbing, or more boradly often feels like throwing off shackles of society and doing something different. Twights writing is strong and certainly you can see from the book he really has lived using the "attidtude of the knife". The writing certainly struck a chord with me, though I am not sure I would cut away quite as much as Twight has over the years.

I bought this book from Cotswolds in Milton Keynes. I was there to buy maps for the Sutherland Trail and there it was.
Most interesting.
I would recommend it for sure.
I am a different animal from the author. He liked pain and challenge and I like a hot bath and scones. With cream and jam.
All I say is WOW.
