About this title:

Synopsis: This book takes readers on a breathtaking voyage stopping at 16 exceptional rock climbing destinations. From the wild interior of Madagascar, Simon Carter gives us an eagles view high up on the Tsaranoro Massif. Off the coast of Vietnam, he explores limestone karsts jutting from the glistening emerald-green waters of Ha Long Bay. In North America he seemingly employs wizardry to reveal Devils Tower’s geometric multifaceted columns from unseen perspectives. Over on the Greek isle of Kalymnos, he navigates us through the bewildering three dimensional tufa jungles. Carter presents the giddying gyroscopic exposure from the perfect pillars of Tasmania’s Tasman Peninsula. The Dolomite’s wild alpine rock, Montserrat’s crazy cobblestone towers and The Darran’s Jurassic wilderness are just some of the other highlights along this spectacular circumnavigation of the globe.

About the Author: Simon Carter is one of the world's foremost climbing photographers. His photography is widely published because Carter has the ability to seamlessly merge landscape and action. Through Carter's lens, the extraordinary rock architecture of the world's classic crags become the stage where climbers fight their own mental and physical battles.
