The popularity of rock climbing is burgeoning across the globe, with dedicated communities practicing everything from bouldering to sport climbing, top roping to free soloing, in awe-inspiring locations. The Art of Climbing showcases Simon Carter’s dramatic and often graphic photography, providing inspiration for aspirational outdoor climbers— anyone keen to graduate from inside climbing walls—and seasoned climbers alike.

The main chapters evoke powerful themes—from Formations to Environment, Intensity to Flow—that exist at the intersection of sport and art. Thoughtful chapter texts, written by Carter and major names on the international climbing scene, narrate experiences on the rock face, exploring both the athletic and aesthetic value of climbing. A reference section includes practical details such as a glossary, grading table, and descriptions of ten selected routes.
