Kiss Or Kill: Confessions of a Serial Climber

Copertina anteriore
The Mountaineers Books, 15 gen 2002 - 208 pagine
Kiss or Kill: Confessions of a Serial Climber is raw, unfiltered Twight who makes it clear that climbing is only distantly about the summit. Whether railing against the spinelessness of siege-style mountaineering, admitting addiction to pushing the bounds of the possible, or revelling in his ability to cut away anything in life that holds him back, Twight never blinks. Along the way, there is the drama of new and epic routes, unbreakable bonds between climbing partners, and Twight's evolution as a climber and a man. He tells every story in a unique, in-your-face style.
