stories from the journey
Steffen Kern fullfilled himself the dream of his life and started to a roadtrip with no one else but his own. He found his freedom travelling and bouldering. The open land and the silence of nature brought him to a new level not only of climbing but also of thinking. He found new friends and saw views of landscapes and rocks which provide only a trip like this. Through the clear lenses of his nikon and with the elaborated words of a reporter of the most famous german climbing magazin he takes us with him out to this trip. We feel like sitting right beside him in the car and share the journey with him.
With this book Geoquest is starting a new kind of books since this is the first german bouldering coffe table book. The large photographs speed up the beat of every climbers heart and put the swet on the palm of every boulderer. The integrated info part (including maps and special travel- and bouldering infos) opens up the opportunity for everyone to make this trip by his own and get his very special adventures "on the road".
Besides the very famous spots like Bishop, Yosemite and Hueco Tanks the book describes the remote area of Ibex. If you would like to know what Ibex means concerning climbing look here.
Christmas is about to come. Carrying this book under his arms Santa Claus is definetly welcome in the house of every serious climber!
