Climbing has a means of expressing metaphorical analogies in one’s own life. I hope that is what this book is about rather than a dissection of technique and ethics. There is plenty of those types of reads around already. In a lot of ways this reminds me of when Bill Bryson’s book “A walk in the Woods” was published. Many were quick to criticize the book as not a good representation of Hiking the AT. Which it was not. But rather a book about human introspection and friendship.
Well said skiguy.
