The joy of climbing: a celebration of Terry Gifford's classic climbs

Gifford, T (2003) The joy of climbing: a celebration of Terry Gifford's classic climbs. Whittles Publishing, Dunbeath. ISBN 9781904445067

Abstract

Finalist in the Mountain Literature category of the prestigious Banff Mountain Book Festival. The Joy of Climbing is the result of a search through Britain, Europe and America for the esoteric gems at the easier end of climbing. This special selection demonstrates the sheer fun and enjoyment of climbing. The articles have been especially chosen to provide a stimulating but achievable challenge, whether on a climb itself or appreciating the moves from the comfort of an armchair. In his writing, Terry Gifford adopts a variety of styles, resulting in a blend that enhances the dramatic nature of the subject and provides the reader with both the lyrical and the unexpected.
