Life in the Stoney woodshed revealed... and more! Enjoyable warts and all biography of Jerry Moffat (without too many warts) by the humorous Niall Grimes.

When Jerry Moffatt burst onto the scene as a brash 17 year old, rock climbing had never seen anyone like him before. Fiercely ambitious, even as a boy Moffatt was focussed on one thing: being the best in the world. This is the story of his meteoric rise to stardom, and how he overcame injury to stay at the top for over two decades. Top sport-climber, brilliant competitor and a pioneer in the new game of bouldering, Moffatt's story is that of climbing itself in the last thirty years.

Yet Jerry Moffatt is more than a dedicated athlete. Travelling the world to fulfil his dreams, his story is a compelling and often hilarious account of the climbing community with all its glories, dangers and foibles, as well as the story of a true sporting legend.

All very inspiring, especially when you read just what he put himself through to get that coveted repeat of Strawberries.
