However, I still find it intriguing that the strenuous physicality and extreme level of fitness these climbers possess appears to be somewhat second nature and not worth much time discussing. Although this may have more to do with the particular climbers I have been reading about because I see there are plenty of books that chronicle fitness and training for climbers. In any case, I am incredibly fascinated by climbers and climbing. If only I could get past my acrophobia and start climbing!
Sep 04, Tara rated it really liked it Shelves: climbing. Lynn Hill is a legend and an inspiration. Her outlook on life is awesome, and I love her attitude about overcoming obstacles, especially in climbing. Instead of lamenting that she's short and can't reach holds that taller climbers can, she sees it as an opportunity to work harder, get creative, and use her own approach.
I always knew she was a badass, but I didn't know that a she is a fantastic writer, and b she has super tiny hands! There's a photo on the back cover of her life size hand, and it's much smaller than mine despite us being the same height. That must rock on crimps. Dec 21, Kinza rated it it was ok. In contrast with her immense climbing skill lies her ability to write. Even with a co-author, the book seems more like a list of achievements or recounting of memories factually.
Talk about the blisters on your hands or your legs burning out from exhaustion. Much of the book is spent explaining her love life and while that is part of her life, only one measly chapter is devoted to her most landmark achievement of free climbing The Nose.
May 01, Jean Dupenloup rated it did not like it Shelves: mountain-climbing , would-not-recommend. An unbelievably whiny and boorish memoir. Lynn Hill could have chosen to write about her many astounding accomplishments and adventures: freeing the nose in a day, becoming the only woman to become accepted by the Camp 4 denizens, or even her near-death experience falling 75 feet after forgetting to complete her figure eight knot.
Instead, ninety percent of the book is spent complaining about being unfairly treated on the gym climbing competition circuit, and accusing other competitors of being un An unbelievably whiny and boorish memoir.
Instead, ninety percent of the book is spent complaining about being unfairly treated on the gym climbing competition circuit, and accusing other competitors of being unsporting while being the least sporting person around.
Books written to settle personal scores rarely go on to be classics. This is no exception. While Lynn Hill will always be remembered for her feats in the vertical world, her book is best forgotten. Luckily, that is easily accomplished. Mar 05, Erika rated it it was amazing Shelves: nonfiction-to-read. A well-written, insightful tale of one of the most badass climbers in history.
Lynn Hill modestly weaves the story of her own personal and professional growth and accomplishments with engaging and often tragic anecdotes of her fellow climbers and her own close calls. I also appreciated how she addressed the sexism she faced as one of a few female climbers in a time when climbing was seen as a males-only sport. It's not a spoiler to say that she methodically and modestly showed her doubters, and A well-written, insightful tale of one of the most badass climbers in history.
It's not a spoiler to say that she methodically and modestly showed her doubters, and the world, what she's made of. A must read for climbers and anyone who is inspired by dedication, passion, and hard work. Apr 30, Christine rated it it was amazing. Loved, loved this book and have developed a great admiration for Lynn Hill as an extraordinary athlete, human and role model.
She is a great storyteller and comes across as a thoughtful and multifaceted spirit as she recounts her successes and harder times with equal grace and a real sense of honesty.
I'm not a climber and still learned so much and appreciated so many things about the book. Just a great read. Jan 13, Linda Brown rated it really liked it. I have always loved climbing and to meet someone whose size did not dictate her amazing ability has always remained with me.
The start of the book is certainly nail biting but the rest of her story is interesting. I did find it interesting that she was a gymnast first so had a great base of flexibility and strength to build from. Overall a good book. Jan 04, Wade Small rated it it was amazing.
