The book is in two parts: the Origins of Bouldering (the only researched history of the sport in existence), and Reflections & Commentary (personal comments and recollections of the author). This is the extended book version of two sections of www.johngill.net.
Included also are essays by the author describing solo adventures after the age of fifty. The book is published as a service to the climbing community - the author makes no profit from its sales.
A longtime boulderer and rock climber who has researched the origins of these sports.
