I deducted one star because I just don't like the prose style. It felt forced and clunky, like someone trying too hard to make something sound really special.
I deducted one star because of how the author writes about women. The part that bothered me the most was the, "If you're going to date a climber, you have to let them go." No, you can just climb with them. That's how a lot of climbing couples get together, shared interest. Also too many references to women satisfying his needs. Yuck, gotta be a better way to put that.
Finally, I deducted one star be cause it felt, to me, that even though he was writing an ode to Gunnison, he was also looking down on the people there. Maybe it's just me, but I really got the vibe that he saw himself as the man of the world, stopping back "home" after his travels to a place where no one is growing or evolving. It felt condescending to me, at times.
