Detailed Product Description
UK, 2014, 1st UK edition. 332 pp, color and b/w photos. New hardcover with dust jacket.

A new collected biography of Pete Livesey with contributions from: Geoff Birtles, Martin Berzins, John Cleare, Jean Claude Droyer, Jim Eyre, Peter Gomersall, Dennis Gray, Ron Fawcett, Peter Livesey, John Long, Nicho Mailander, Mark Radtke, John Sheard and many more.
 
This compilation of inspirational and at times downright funny tales forms a loose climbing biography that charts his journey from cave explorer to one of the world's leading rock-climbers. Written by those who shared in his journey, this fascinating collection of stories and observations gives unique insight into what he achieved, what he stood for and ultimately why he deserves a place in the pantheon of world climbing Greats. Includes plated sections of colour and black and white photographs.

John Sheard Climbed with Livesey during the late 60's and throughout the 70's, sharing the pursuit of new routes and the overdue escalation of grades, particularly in Yorkshire. He followed the Livesey example of seeking out new destinations with several visits to Yosemite and to European Limestone making the first tentative explorations of the Verdon Gorge by UK climbers. His interests in alpinism took him on an overland journey to climb in the Himalaya followed by a more comfortable one to Latok 2 in the Karakorum with Paul Nunn in 1978.

Mark Radtke Started rock-climbing in the late 1970's and by the mid 1980's was pioneering new routes to a high standard throughout Yorkshire and the Lake District. He has climbed extensively throughout Europe, Australia and North America and embraces climbing in all its forms. He was area correspondent for On The Edge Magazine for five years where he reported on the latest rock-climbing developments in Yorkshire and was Yorkshire area chair for the BMC for four years. He has contributed to numerous climbing guidebooks and his photographs and articles have appeared periodically in climbing magazines since 1984. His climbing autobiography A Canvas of Rock was published in 2012 to good acclaim.
