Characters of Climbing


Beyond the Face, Characters of Climbing is a collection of essays and interviews portraying the stories behind thirty nine climbers who are currently involved in competitions or who have contributed to the history of competition climbing. It includes personal accounts and reveals different attitudes, offering an insight into the dynamic soul of climbing competition. The book provides an understanding, in words and photographs, of the unique and diverse experiences of each of the climbers, so that their insight into competition lead and bouldering climbing will not be lost.
