From the most beautiful routes in the UK, France and America to deep-water soloing in Majorca and opening new lines in South Africa, James Pearson and Caroline Ciavaldini, two of rock climbing’s biggest stars, take you to the sport’s most iconic, unusual and daring destinations.
With stunning photography showcasing rock climbing’s various styles and landscapes, each entry also includes expert tips, grading details and helpful topography of specific routes or sectors.

The author

James Pearson grew up in the Peak District and it is therefore no surprise that James has made a name for himself on ‘God’s own rock’. Aged 15 he donned his first pair of rock shoes and quickly started climbing some of Gritstones’ hardest and boldest routes. Having completed some of the world’s hardest traditional routes, James shifted his focus to include bouldering, sport, and multi-pitch. He currently lives in the South of France, and continues his quest to climb hard rock, all over the world.

Caroline Ciavaldini grew up on the tiny island of La Reunion, in the South Indian Ocean. Caro discovered climbing aged 12 and quickly became obsessed by the competition world. For 10 years she focused on the Lead World Cup Circuit. After realizing her dreams of competition, she has redirected her motivation towards outdoor climbing, and now loves to give herself challenges in trad, sport and multi-pitch. Outdoor climbing is, as she often says, her ‘second life’ as a climber.

Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
