More Than It Hurts and other stories of (mis)adventure by womxn who climb and mountaineer.

Fourteen climbers and mountaineers tell their insightful, hilarious and adrenaline-filled stories of adventure and misadventure in Australia and beyond.

Caitlin battles leukemia and self-doubt as she sets herself an epic climbing challenge. Vanessa eventually decides to stop free soloing with a rack and actually place some trad gear. Thelma and her friends become one of the first groups of women to bolt new routes in Iran. Araminta’s path to Paralympic glory (or so her father fondly hoped) hits a snag when she takes up climbing instead. Fed up with the patriarchy, Emily declares she will marry the mountains instead. Kate deals with the aftermath of a near-tragedy when a friend falls into a crevasse. Wendy fails to read the (obvious) warning signs as she heads into a rapidly flooding canyon to climb in Oman. In her late forties, Jessica learns what a crampon is and contemplates Mount Everest.

‘Tantalising and hard to put down, each story takes us on an intimate journey across continents, covering all terrain and emotions... More Than It Hurts will compel you to go out and conquer your own dreams.’ - Monique Forestier

This collection of personal stories is produced by the non-profit rock-climbing group, Climb & Wine, to celebrate women, including people of diverse genders, and their contributions to rock-climbing and mountaineering.
