Krakauer’s Eiger Dreams

Eiger Dreams: Ventures Among Men And Mountains 
John Krakauer

A collection of Krakauers early works, pre best seller, stuff focused on the world of rock climbing. Some of this is hilarious to read now (have you heard of this new thing called “bouldering”? Its getting kind of popular) and some of it still feel fresh (canyoneering remains awesome and under recognized). The writing is good throughout, but this one is the definition of a recommended for the enthusiast. If you’re interested in the world of climbing, then go for it, but not much here for the general reader.
