Dan Cheetham asked me to flag up that he has been working on a website for an upcoming book:

https://www.modernclimber.co.uk

There are some (short) sample pages on the website.

This looks excellent. Back when printed media was the norm their seemed to be room, albeit small, for this sort of perspective. In the modern age it does seem to have disappeared, or perhaps it just sinks now that human gatekeepers have been replaced by algorithms. Or perhaps such energies get vented in other directions.

Would suggest deleting /about from the above link as navigation appears limited.

Indeed. Looking forward to read it.

Sarah-Jane's "A Feeling for Rock" also has that sense.

I read three extracts and there were four philosopher quotes. Quite the ratio. Very impressive that Dan has read Spinoza.
