Detailed Product Description
UK, 2012, 1st ed. 288 pp. New hardcover with dust jacket. 

A Canvas of Rock transports the reader through two of the most influential periods in modern British rock-climbing as seen through the eyes one of the UK's well-respected rock climbers - Mark Radtke. This collection of personal experiences and friendships with climbers from the 1970s to the present day, provides a rare insight and first-hand account on some of the crucial and at times contentious episodes that paved the way to today's rock-climbing scene.  
 
We are also treated to insights of the man himself - his passion and his drive that have allowed him to challenge his limits and to pioneer many new Extreme routes. 'Rad shows us his own frailties - his vertigo, his occasional bursts of egocentricity - and this makes him a convincing guide. It is a great read, full of humour and drama, but at the same time it is a wise and important contribution to the ongoing debate of climbing ethics. Where slipping into the comfort zone does not and must not equal progress.' From Foreword by Andy Cave
 
Mark Radtke (Rad) is a well- known character in the UK's rock climbing scene having spent the last thirty years pitting himself against hard extreme routes around the world and adding to the rich tapestry of climbing with a plethora of first ascents of his own. He embraces climbing in all its forms, but in his debut book reveals how adventure lies at the heart and soul of the experience. 'Without risk climbing simply becomes a sport'. Mark has worked as a learning and development specialist for the last twenty years. He runs his own company that helps businesses and people achieve outstanding results. He is married with three daughters and lives in the Yorkshire Dales.
