Julian Lines is one of Britain's most accomplished free solo climbers and over many years has gained an awesome reputation. In this Boardman Tasker Award winning book, he gives a rare and candid glimpse into the mind of one of climbing's most audacious and determined legends.

Tears of the Dawn is a journey unlike any other. With artistic eloquence and an unexpected humbleness, Lines recreates the triumphs, tribulations, friendships, romances and perhaps most poignantly of all, his close encounters with death, leaving the reader breathless, on edge, and, as the sunlight breaks, dreaming of mountain tops, oil rigs and a sense of adventure.

Spanning more than three decades of extreme climbing, Lines, fondly known as 'The International Man of Mystery', unveils the drive and determination required to push all limits and survive the most ultimate and extreme precipices the world has to offer.

This heartfelt and at times humorous, adrenaline infused account is more than a story of adventure, it is a tale of obsession, addiction, passion, courage and the ability to push boundaries. Beautifully designed and illustrated, for dreamers and realists alike, Tears of the Dawn is an awe inspiring and toe tingling tale to be enjoyed by all.

"A must read for those with an interest in UK trad climbing, and those who are keen to discover more about one of the UK's most fascinating characters. An insightful and compelling journey through the life of Jules Lines" - Jack Geldard, UKC Review

I agree, this is one of the best climbing autobiographies I have read. Jules Lines is probably the most radical and interesting climber you have never heard of.

How does this compare to the original book (of which I have a copy)? Is the text updated? Photos changed or updated? Anything else?

Thanks.

Hi Rob,

The text is unchanged but there are some new photos inside (and as you can see the cover has changed). The 1st edition sold out and Jules was keen to get it back into circulation.
