'Tantalising and hard to put down, each story takes us on an intimate journey across continents, covering all terrain and emotions... More Than It Hurts will compel you to go out and conquer your own dreams.' - Monique Forestier
Inspiring, engrossing and thought-provoking ... this diverse anthology of personal stories left me with a longing to get out into the mountains again.' - Tim Macartney-Snape
Caitlin battles leukemia and self-doubt as she sets herself an epic climbing challenge. Vanessa eventually decides to stop free soloing with a rack and actually place some trad gear. Thelma and her friends become one of the first groups of women to bolt new routes in Iran. Araminta's path to Paralympic glory (or so her father fondly hoped) hits a snag when she takes up climbing instead. Fed up with the patriarchy, Emily declares she'd rather marry the mountains. Kate deals with the aftermath of a near-tragedy when a friend falls into a crevasse. Wendy fails to read the warning signs as she heads into a rapidly flooding canyon to climb in Oman. In her late forties, Jessica learns what a crampon is and contemplates Mount Everest.
Fourteen climbers and mountaineers tell their insightful, hilarious and adrenaline-filled stories of adventure and misadventure in Australia and beyond.
