Gary Hemming was a rock climber, alpinist, writer, and a troubled individual. Several people owe their lives to him as he did some high altitude rescues. He was involved in several first ascents.

Gary Hemming was a rock climber, alpinist, writer, and a troubled individual. As the majority of his climbing was done in the Alps he is less known in the USA, although he was from the USA. I enjoyed the stories of rock climbing in California in the Sixties and the first ascents in the Alps. His tragic death is just that, tragic. An interesting and well written book

Gary Hemming-the enigmatic Californian who brought the modern American climbing spirit and technique to the Alps during the 1960s-was a cultural hero in Europe during an era of social upheaval. Launched into fame after a daring rescue of stranded climbers on the West Face of the Dru, Hemming became a star of the French media. Mirella Tenderini explores Hemming’s tumultuous life and spectacular climbs, creating a profound and tragic portrait of a man who sought a freedom-of love and climbing-that eluded him in this world.

Launched into fame after a daring rescue of stranded climbers on the West Face of the Dru, Gary Hemming became a star of the French media. Several years earlier Hemming and Royal Robbins made the first ascent of the American Direct on the Aiguille du Dru. Yet his fame in Europe-and anonymity in America-sat uneasily with his rebellious nature.

If your looking for high adventure in the cold crisp air of high alpine rock climbing this is not the book for you. Instead its a well researched and written book into the inner world of a difficult to know individual who likely had greater abilities up in the high lonesome than down on the ground. Self centered. stubborn, contradictory, and a whole host of other difficult personality traits he undoubtedly tried his best but for those nearest to him it was a difficult ride. Death by his own hand, in a location w/friends, and only his mother attended the funeral. A large figure from the fringes of modern rock climbing he was until this book more a collection of campfire lore than a real person. If this sounds good you wont find a better book on the subject.

This book I believe is the only extant treatise on Gary's life which was tumultuous and those interested with alternative lifestyles, personality forms and depression will find an intriguing story...especially in the terminal chapter

Gary Hemming was a rock climber, alpinist, writer, and a troubled individual. Several people owe their lives to him as he did some high altitude rescues. He was involved in several first ascents. This is a well researched biography of a little known climber. As the majority of his climbing was done in the Alps he is less known in the USA, although he was from the USA. I enjoyed the stories of rock climbing in California in the Sixties and the first ascents in the Alps. His tragic death is just that, tragic. An interesting and well written book,
