For more than 20 years, Rock & Ice magazine has published excellent writing from the world's best climbers. Now, for the first time, Rock & Ice editor Dougald MacDonald has gathered together a collection of the best of the best.

The range of talent and perspective in this anthology of 25 essays is astounding. Jay Anderson reveals his obsession with an offwidth chimney on the cold high plains of southeastern Wyoming. Ruaridh Pringle, caught in a lightning storm, experiences a lifetime of terror in one climb. Weird clients and even weirder instructors are the subject of a John Long yarn. Will Gadd lets the influential, flamboyant, and iconoclastic Christian Griffith speak for himself in an insightful profile. And Christian Beckwith takes a moving and sympathetic look at the plight of Soviet climbers who disappeared from the climbing world after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
