The rock wall is steep, and every muscle is clenched. Fingers are slipping. Blood is pumping. Carefully, carefully, a foot is placed on a small ledge. Now the climber must reach for the next handhold.
Steffen Kjaer is a mountaineer and journalist. He describes the challenges of climbing as only someone can who has faced them himself. Over the last ten years, he has climbed some of the most legendary cliff faces in the world. Here, he tells you what it’s like.
The book is illustrated with impressive photos.
