Kim Carrigan BOOK 2-Mar-2017 At 12:15:01 AM simey
Not really sure why this book needs to be called The Carrigan Years. There is a definitely a story to be told about Australian climbing from 75 to 85 (whether it be book or film), but Kim is only one of the players. There were a lot of characters who made a significant impression both in Australia and overseas in all manner of climbing... Jon Muir - hard soloing and mountaineering, Louise Shepherd - cutting edge onsights, Greg Child - new routes on El Cap and Himalayan peaks as well as hard free climbs, Mark Moorhead - cutting edge free climbs, hard solos, Himalayan exploits, Mike Law - for everything weird and whacky and occasionally hard.

If I was going to name the star character, it would be Mt Arapiles. It was quite literally home for all the leading Australian climbers and a must visit destination for leading climbers from abroad.

I'm sure Kim is worthy of a biography, but if you're focusing on that ten year time period I would be searching for a different title and a slightly different focus.
