Dedication

This book is dedicated to the memory of two of the most amazing climbers of all time:

Wolfgang Güllich (1960-1992)
and
Derek Hersey (1957-1993)

Anyone who was fortunate enough to share a rope or a beer with them became a better climber. Two quotes:

Derek Hersey, to someone starting a route:
"Remember, when in doubt, run it out."

Ron Fawcett, being interviewed by the German climbing magazine Rotpunkt on the anniversary of his first ascent of the Master's Edge:
"Was möchtest Du besitzen?" [What would you wish for?]
"Was Wolfgang hat." [What Wolfgang has.]
