This search throughout Britain, Europe and America for the esoteric gems at the easier end of climbing is compiled from 20 years of writing for the magazines in a lively variety of forms--from new myths to minor epics, from parody to poetry and from tall tales to rare interviews with some of the characters in the climbing community. The book is a sample of the richness that climbing can offer a climber of modest ability who, by his own admission, easily gets scared on the supposedly easy routes.
