Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Arno Ilgner distinguished himself as a pioneering rock climber in the 1970s and 80s, when the top climbs were bold and dangerous first ascents. These personal exploits are the foundation for Ilgner s unique physical and mental training program--The Warrior`s Way. In 1995, after a thorough search of the literature and practice of mental training and the great warrior traditions, Ilgner formalized his methods, founded the Desiderata Institute, and began teaching his program full time. Since then, he has helped hundreds of student sharpen their awareness, focus attention, and understand their athletic (and life) challenges within a coherent, learning-based philosophy of intelligent risk-taking. Ilgner considers the joy and satisfaction in the effort the journey intimately linked to successful attainment of goals, the destination. Alumni of his courses now include some of the nation s most prominent climbers. Ilgner has run clinics in the north- and southeastern U.S, to California, Canada, and the U.K. He has worked with young competition climbers and written national magazine articles based on his methods. He holds a BA in geology, spent several years operating his own geological consulting firm in the Wyoming oil fields, acted as Chief Financial Officer for an industrial tool distribution company, attended the Army Ranger School, and served a non-combat tour of duty in Korea. He currently resides with his family near Nashville, Tennessee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformative. Changed not just my climbing, but my way of thinking
By Philip Wire on September 21, 2019
After an unsuccessful attempt on the Grand Teton in 2018, this book was recommended to me by a helpful guide. I had a a series of panic attacks shortly after the exposed climbing began and aborted my climb. While most of the book focuses on sport and trad climbing instead of mountaineering, this book is FANTASTIC for any climbing discipline from bouldering to alpine mountaineering. This book taught me to embrace the inner journey, stop using the comparing mind to pad my ego and take a hard look at how I could grow as a climber. My comfort with exposure and heights is still a work in progress, but after reading this book and getting some practice, I returned to the Tetons and summited the Grand in 2019. This book deserves a lot of the credit. If you climb at all in any discipline, I can't recommend it enough. If you struggle with fear of falling or fear of exposure, it is a must-read.
