Detailed Product Description
1990, 1st or 2nd edition. 130 pp, photos. Interviews with Robbins, Whittaker, Lynn Hill, Skinner, Bonington, Lowe, Bass, 20+ others. Paperback, only edition. Near Fine to Fine. 

The title is itself a summary. Charles Houston, a climber, gives a mature opinion on the lure of the sport in the forward. Then 29 variations of that theme follow in the words of individuals who have made a name in American adventure climbing (c.1940-80). Three of these are women; five are non-Americans. A few younger climbers known for achievements in the newer sport climbing are included. Gardiner gives a considerable amount of biography on each climber as well as their own words.
