2016, 1st edition. 303 pp, 100s color & b/w large format photos. In English.
After more than two years of painstaking work, last May Austrian climbing team coach Heiko Wilhelm  published his book Beyond the Face, characters of climbing. Produced together with Ben Lepasant,  Elias Holzknecht and Stewart Watson, this detailed look at competition climbing retraces the lives of 39 athletes who have helped shape this sport over the last 30 years.

Includes action and training photos of the best climbers of today, plus the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. More than pretty pictures, the book includes the results of all the competitions these superb climbers won or placed.
