/ ARTICLE: Gwen Moffat - Thoughts on viewing Psycho Vertical
This is really about reaching across the generations, and then realizing that we are all climbers with the same aspirations and fears, especially when someone ups the bar. It's just the same with music, a new gerneration, a new style of music. Just don't get hung up on the music of our youth, but see what is being done now.An open mind is a wonderful thing. We might not be the next Ondra or Andy Fitz, but we can take on the lessons, the approach and much else. The common link between these two characters of the climbing world, is forgoing the cushion of a regular job and seeking adventure, ploughing an original furrow. I've read all of Gwen's books and throughly enjoyed them. Life led to the full by both climbers.
