I’m reading a book called Eiger Dreams by Jon Krakaur. It’s all about the adventure of rock climbing and I highly recommend it for anyone who wonders how and why anyone would want to climb.
The book is essentially a collection of climbing adventures that paint a great picture of the sport. The author doesn’t just talk abou the climbing, he talks about all things climbing related. There’s a chapter on the pilots that fly climbers into high altitudes and another chapter on what it’s like to stay in a tent for weeks at a time.
I’m excited for the warm season, because I suspect many outdoor climbing adventures.
I love this world.
