One of our lives' great pleasures is to get lost in a story, writes Gregory Crouch. "Climbers are story addicts. We tell tales while we eye famous routes, swill beer around campfires, or engage in endless slanderfests. And climbing history weaves its way through the fabric of these stories." Since 1995, Greg Crouch's Goldline column has been a popular, well-respected part of Rock & Ice magazine.
The twenty-seven thrilling adventures collected here feature some of the biggest names in climbing, including Tom Patey, Chuck Pratt, Pete Schoening, and more. Including nine stories never before published, Rock & Ice Goldline: Stories of Climbing Adventure & Tradition is filled with the kind of inspiring feats that make climbing history so rich and exciting.
