How does it feel to rock climb – the touch, ethics, companionship, landscape, and language? A Feeling for Rock explores such topics in a clever mix of poetry, cartoons, photographs, essays, and interviews with both lifelong climbers and total beginners. Fun for dipping into or a more immersive read, it will brighten your climbing experience.
A Feeling for Rock won the Climbing Literature Award 2021 at Banff Mountain Book Competition.

“One of the pleasures of reading this book is you rarely know what Dobner is going to come up with next… If…you too have been wondering where the joy of climbing has gone, I recommend you get yourself a copy of A Feeling for Rock.” – Ian Parnell
