Climbing the Seven Volcanoes: a search for strength // Book Review
What’s on your lockdown reading list? If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent a lot of time staring out the window, dreaming of adventures – anything from small trips to the local crag, to climbing 8000-metre peaks. But what will it take to motivate you to actually take that next step once we’re allowed outside?
Try Climbing the Seven Volcanoes: a search for strength by Sophie Cairns.
I know, we’ve all had enough of hearing the wonderful journeys of beautiful Instagram influencers who bravely quit their jobs to travel the world and find themselves, all conveniently funded by daddy’s credit card, but this is not one of those stories. It’s easy to reject the story of the regular person starting out in mountaineering, in favour of the professionals’ unattainable challenges. But don’t pass this one over.
