The Zen of Climbing

A Philosophy for Climbers


A new book of climbing inspiration and philosophy from the author of 'The Boulder'.

What do Zen masters, 16th-century Samurai, and Alex Honnold have in common? They are masters of awareness. Climbing is a sport of perception, and our successes and failures are matters of mind as much as body. Written by life-long climber and philosopher Francis Sanzaro, 'The Zen of Climbing' explores the roots of climbing, delving into sports psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and Taoism. Awareness, he argues, is the alchemy of climbing, allowing us to merge mental and physical attributes in one embodied whole. Written by the author of the classic The Boulder, this book puts the climber's mind centre stage.
