Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book offers an inspiring look at the world of female climbing, capturing the heart of the sport from a perspective not fully explored before—that of the women climbers themselves. Working with Chris Noble on this project was an absolute pleasure. He helped me to reflect on and articulate why climbing has become my life’s passion. I highly recommend this delightful read.”—Sasha DiGiulian, world-ranking leader in female outdoor sport climbing


More About the Author

Recognized as one of the world's leading adventure photographers, Chris Noble's work celebrates the beauty of nature and inspires people to live healthier, more mindful, and more sustainable lives. According to American Photo magazine, "the secret of Noble's success is that there's no dividing line between adventure and his photography." A veteran of expeditions ranging from Denali to Everest to the jungles of Borneo, Noble's writing and photography have appeared in hundreds of publications including Life, National Geographic, Newsweek, Orion, Outside, Rolling Stone, and Sports Illustrated, as well as books and anthologies. His humanitarian work includes portraits of Rwandan genocide survivors for Lily Yeh's Barefoot Artist Organization and environmental imagery in Africa, Canada, and Southern Utah for Round River Conservation. Noble's latest book is "Women Who Dare" celebrating the athleticism, wisdom, and grace of twenty of North America's most inspiring women climbers. As world champion Sasha DiGiulian, states, "this book offers an inspiring look at the world of female climbing, capturing the heart of the sport from a perspective not fully explored before-- that of women themselves. Working with Chris Noble on this project was an absolute pleasure. He helped me reflect on and articulate why climbing has become my life's passion."

Format: Paperback
I've never called myself a "climber" but I do enjoy climbing and married an accomplished climber, so I enjoy reading & learning about the culture and history of climbing. Most of what I've read or known has been centered on men climbers so I was excited to see this book about women climbers. I think this book is beautifully done, the photographs are really amazing! You'll wonder how in the world the photographer (Chris Noble) was able to capture these woman climbing. The profiles, told in their own voice, of the 20 women are motivating (even for a 60 year old woman), interesting and entertaining. Even if you’ve never climbed, you’ll find the stories in this book tell a universal story about finding and following your passion, about struggles and adversity, about love and relationships and finally about personal success and inspiration. You don't need to be a climber or a woman (my husband loves the book too) to enjoy and appreciate this book.

Format: Kindle Edition
This wonderful book profiles twenty of the best and most inspiring women climbers in North America. Two things immediately come to mind after reading about each woman’s history, accomplishments, goals, and philosophies: There isn’t one right path in pursuing a climbing career and/or lifestyle, and each of them consistently faces her own fears while on the rocks. It’s humbling to know that, despite their skills and immense accomplishments, they all confess to being afraid. And some, like Kate Rutherford, have cried on a punishing route when finding herself more exposed than anticipated.

Format: Paperback
This is really quite well done; I like the format, the way in which each chapter includes both a summary of the climber's life and a personal story as well as responses to a set of personalized questions. The photography is all beautiful and captures skill as well as personality. The selection of climbers is great; stars from the earlier days as well as today's top young climbers.

The book seems to be set up to be used for education, as certain climbing jargon words are always in italics, however the author also italicizes words for emphasis so the effect is to have a whole lot of italics on every page. This would have worked better had the italics only been used for the climbing jargon (or even not at all).
