Detailed Product Description
Australia, 2011, 1st edition. 180 pp, many color photos. World Climbing: Rock Odyssey, the welcomed sequel to Simon Carter's award-winning World Climbing: Images from the Edge, presents the finest images by one of the world's foremost climbing photographers.
 
Rock Odyssey is a photographic essay which follows modern day rock climbers to far flung reaches of the world where they attempt the routes of their dreams. A visual feast for its passengers, Rock Odyssey takes us on a breathtaking voyage stopping at sixteen exceptional rock climbing destinations.
 
From the wild interior of Madagascar, Simon Carter gives us an eagle's view high up on the Tsaranoro Massif. Off the coast of Vietnam, he explores limestone karsts jutting from the glistening emerald-green waters of Ha Long Bay. Over on the Greek isle of Kalymnos, he navigates us through the bewildering three dimensional tufa jungles. The Dolomite's wild alpine rock, Montserrat's crazy cobblestone towers and The Darran's Jurassic wilderness are just some of the other highlights along this spectacular circumnavigation of the globe.
 
Rock Odyssey is a celebration of Simon Carter's vision to capture the dizzying feats of climbers doing what they love most. Carter has captured elusive moments, seamlessly merging landscape with action and magically animating his images with untrumpable natural light. Through Carter's lens, the extraordinary rock architecture of the world's classics crags become the stage, an arena, where climbers contest their own mental and physical battles. Barriers are broken, boundaries are pushed, dreams are lived, and, sometimes, summits are bagged. Chapter introductions written by leading Australian climber Monique Forestier, set the scene and give delightful insights into the unique attractions of each area.
 
New large format hardcover, extra postage required for Priority Mail or International Mail.
