In the comprehensive, humorous, and highly irreverent Who’s Who in British Climbing (£24.00, theclimbingcompany.net), author Colin Wells catalogues the “romantics, eccentrics, and buffoons who have made British climbing what it is.” Packed with mini-bios on nearly 700 bigwigs, the book pulls no punches, painting ribald—and sometimes flippant—caricatures of each personality’s quirks and foibles. Don’t rely on this book as an encyclopedic compendium of facts, but rather, grab a beer, and make it your fun and intriguing rest-day (or restroom) read.
