From the cover: When Jerry Moffatt burst onto the scene as a brash 17-year-old, rock climbing had never seen anyone like him before. Fiercely ambitious, even as a boy Moffatt was focused on one thing: being the best in the world.

This is the story of his meteoric rise to stardom, and how he overcame injury to stay at the top for over two decades. Top sport climber, brilliant competitor and a pioneer in the new game of bouldering, Moffatts story is that of climbing itself in the last thirty years.

Yet Jerry Moffatt is more than a dedicated athlete. Travelling the world to fulfil his dreams, his story is a compelling and often hilarious account of the climbing community, with all its glories, dangers and foibles, as well as the story of a true sporting legend.

Very Good. Faint lean. Previous owners’ inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.
