Detailed Product Description

MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE

2000. 151 pp. In the last decade Pete Takeda has taken the climbing world by storm. He has also been writing about his climbs, and here is his first collection of tales, from Yosemite to the Himalaya. New Paperback. THIS IS OUT OF PRINT, WE HAVE THE LAST COPIES.

 
This collection of gritty trip reports is a compilation of feature stories written for Climbing magazine over the years. Pete’s Wicked Book, described as “rather dystopian” by one reader, presents “a dark rendition of the climbing dream.” We admit it’s also a bit disjointed – even amateurish. But, according to one fan, if you can see past the discordant rhythm – and the typos, “this is a book well worth picking up.” Judge for yourself.

Award-winning author Pete Takeda grew up in Boise, Idaho, dropped out of college in the mid-80’s, then moved to Yosemite Valley where he bussed tables for six years and climbed his brains out.

Pete now writes and climbs in and around Boulder, Colorado. He has led expeditions to the Himalayas, climbed in Alaska, cragged in Australia, alpine climbed in India, bouldered in Nepal, whacked ice in Iceland, mixed it up in Scotland, pimped stone in Mexico and Europe, and scared himself silly on alpine, ice and mixed routes in the Canadian Rockies.

Pete is a Senior Contributing Editor to Rock and Ice magazine and contributor to outdoor journals like Outside, Climbing, Alpinist, and Backpacker.
