Publisher Comments:

Solo climbing means climbing alone. It's the ultimate high-stakes highwire act, and the bottom line is clear and final: you fall, you die. But what attracts people to this lonely, seemingly insane pursuit? The answers might be found in this collection of epic solo climbing stories. Famous climber and noted soloist John Long's introductions and commentary help shed light on the inner workings of these uniquely gifted adventurers, and the stories themselves carry the reader to the world's great mountain ranges in pursuit of the ultimate climbing experience.
