Climbing Free

New or Used: $34.99
Lynn's career has developed alongside the growth of the very sport she practices. She first learned to climb in the 1970s, when the sport was practically unknown, but her extraordinary gift for rock climbing became widely recognized as the sport became more popular. She stunned the international climbing community when she became the first person to free-climb Yosemite's famous 3000ft Nose, and topped this feat the following year by climbing the same route in 23 hours, half the time in pitch darkness, something it took 6264 hours for the next male climber to accomplish. This outstanding achievement, as well as her strong belief, has ensured that both sexes now compete on routes of equal difficulty in competitions and that Lynn is respected both as a rock climber and as a role model for all women in sports.

Hill is touted as the greatest free climber in the world meaning she climbs without gear, which could make for scary reading. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

The inspiring autobiography of Lynn Hill, a Californian girl who has been hailed as the world's foremost female rock climber - and indeed as one of the greatest climbers of either sex that the sport has ever known. She captures the thrills of the climb and demonstrates the physical and mental courage needed to make a safe path up a cliff so that the climber can enjoy the gymnastic play between the human body and steep stone. All armchair adventurers will enjoy reading about her extraordinary exploits which include becoming the first person to free-climb Yosemite's famous 3,000-feet Nose. Even those of us who only tackle steep hills behind a wheel will appreciate the spiritual satisfaction gained by those who risk life and limb in search of raw excitement.
