I loved it. I thought it was one of the most gripping and vivid climbing books I have read in recent years. What a crazy life. If you're looking for a Christmas present then look no further.

Get It.

Easily the best book I have read, in some parts its more like reading a Tolkien book than a climbing autobiography!

More than worth the few quid it costs... a truly inspiring read!
