World Climbing: Images from the Edge is a visual celebration of modern technical climbing by one of the sport's leading photographers, Simon Carter. Without Hollywood tricks or special effects, Carter gives readers a good, hard, honest look at contemporary climbing at its finest. This extensive work features more than 90 climbers. Spanning 12 countries, Australia, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., each of the 29 climbing areas opens with an introduction highlighting its appealing details. This book covers climbing from its easiest to its hardest but above all its best. World Climbing is an extraordinary photographic odyssey that is as inspirational as it is beautiful. Rich color, unlikely perspectives, and dizzying heights combine to mesmerize spectators and transport them into another realm. Simon Carter has climbed regularly since 1984. His work is widely published internationally and has won several awards.
