Why do you say that? The link doesn't comment on the book, just the climber.

In reply to adderz: Hi Adderz,

You could also wait till it comes out, and buy it in your local climbing shop. Since Jerry owns it they shouldn't have miuch trouble getting him to sign a copy.

There was also talk of a reading but I don't think anything has been set in stone yet.

Surprised this thread hasn't been pulled for unpaid advertising, given the direct linking to an external company!

i think it will be intresting hearing about all the ascents and trips he got to go on before climbing became too popular.
i'm reading a book by lynn hill at the momment which is great. i like to hear about the first exciting days of the rockclimbing era. i'm sure it won't appeal to more bimbly type climbers but then i don't really care about who walked up what hill and when. i like to hear about the climbers who wanted to push them selfs on the rock. anyone else read the lynn hill book?

In reply to adderz: I thought he owned your local shop but I have just checked your profile more carefully and see I was wrong. Either you have moved or I am confusing you with an Adders that uised to post on here. Sorry.

Rockclimbing started a little earlier than then, by maybe a century !

I don't get that, sorry. Not dissing Jerry at all - he's a great climber.
All I meant was that link you gave was more about him and really nothing about the book, so I was wondering where the "pretty good book" comment came from.
DEvans - on 10 Jan 2009
In reply to Fraser: maybe he likes the idea o the book.

i think its a good idea for a book therefore i think its a good book.

i hope its going to be a good read.

Grades have been shooting up since the beginning of the sport in the mid 1880s. One of the most remarkable leaps was in c. 1910-14.

i'd like to hear more about it please.
