Vertical World details the lives and accomplishments of the most influential climbers of this generation, sharing through casual conversation an intimate portrait of each climber, revealing their personalities and drive with great frankness and intimacy. All athletes included are under thirty-five and have broken a major barrier or made a significant accomplishment within the sport - in all cases, something that will stand the test of time. The athletes represent all areas of climbing, from bouldering and sport climbing to mountaineering and big wall climbing. Introduction by Pete Takeda

Each rock generation brings new vision and new focus to ultimate climbing challenges. In Vertical World, Katie Brown, herself one of the world’s greatest climbers, introduces nine of America’s best and brightest masters of rock climbing. Through engaging interviews and stunning action photographs taken by top climbing photographers, the most gifted climbers of this generation bring style, grace, skill, and strength to the hardest and most beautiful rock climbs on planet Earth. They talk about their successes and failures, their training secrets, their favorite crags, their climbing partners, their wildest dreams, and their craziest adventures. These are today’s cutting-edge climbers touching the vertical dream and climbing without limits.
