📚 Finished reading: The Impossible Climb by Mark Synnott, ISBN: 9781101986653
This wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but it was quite good nonetheless. I often scramble up rocks while running, but I’m certainly not a climber like these people. The similarities between climbing culture and ultrarunning culture are sometimes striking. The book is part memoir, part climbing history, with the remainder focusing on Alex Honnold’s free soloing. Most of the content of the book is covered (in considerably less detail, though with added visuals) by the two excellent documentaries Valley Uprising (2014) and Free Solo (2018).
