He died doing what he had a passion for, and you can feel it in his book. I'm sure he may have written another. Many good parallels to life based on his real adventures. Almost makes you want to literally go climb a mountain.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sep 15, Adam BookSlayers12 Willson rated it it was amazing. Highly entertaining and very very insightful!! Jan 10, Mary rated it really liked it. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to listen to Todd Skinner speak to our company nearly 14 years ago. His blending of the elements that led to the first free ascent of the East Side of the Trango Tower with an eclectic group; relating the principles of rock climbing and skill advancement, were expressed eloquently to whatever path you choose in life.
I have been thinking of those principles often lately. Thus, reading the book brought back his presentation very clearly.

The book combined wit I was fortunate to have the opportunity to listen to Todd Skinner speak to our company nearly 14 years ago. The book combined with his presentation gives an inspirational teaching experience. Sadly, Todd Skinner passed away in a climbing accident several years ago. He is greatly missed in the climbing community and the people he inspired with over first ascents around the world.
A great achiever; an amazing read. Apr 08, Ryan Smith rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed Todd's story. There were a few times where I was on the edge of my seat, imagining some of the difficult things they went through. His ability to compare his challenges with business challenges was actually done well.
