As Above, So Below: A Climbing Story

SKU: 10654
  • As Above, So Below is a 103-page fictional climbing story set in Argentine Patagonia. When something goes wrong high up a mountain, one man is forced to face his inner demons along the way to the summit.

    This beautiful hardbound book was published in 2018 as a limited edition of 1000 copies. The book is now in its second printing. The story was illustrated by the immensely talented Craig Muderlak, and edited and revised at the The Banff Centre’s prestigious Mountain and Wilderness Writing Workshop.

    As Above, So Below has been described as "Jack London's To Build a Fire for climbing", and reminiscent of James Salter's Solo Faces. In September of 2018, it was nominated for the Mountain Fiction Award at the Banff Mountain Book and Film Festival in Banff, Canada.
