A Collection of poetry, articles, technical suggestions, and artworks; A Feeling for Rock features a selection of Sarah-Jane Dobner's writings that have been published over the past decade. Touching on subjects such as language, landscape, ethics, community, injury, and sensuality, A Feeling for Rock delves into the plethora of sensations that rock and rock climbing can evoke.
Featuring interviews from a range of devotees including Johnny Dawes, Mina Leslie-Wujastyk, and Jesse Dufton - alongside beginners taking the first climbing steps of their climbing journey.
A Passionate and all-encompassing celebration of rock climbing as both a hobby and a way of life, Sarah-Jane Dobner's A Feeling for Rock is both accessible and heartfelt and is ideal as both an immersive experience before bed or dipping in and out of whilst having a coffee at the wall.
By employing the means of poetry, cartoons, essays, interviews, weavings, photographs, and technical tips, A Feeling for Rock covers the vast spread of emotions climbing can offer; whether it is being bamboozled by a route, connecting with the landscape, or flicking through a guidebook, whilst also venturing into ethical regions of bias and privilege, and questions our relations with each other and the rock.

**What people have to say:**

*“Sarah-Jane deftly explores the smorgasbord of emotions that rock, climbing and rock climbing culture have roused in her…As ever, SJ rocks the boat and tackles gender issues head-on; subverting the dominant discourse of men and mountains and instead putting sex, sensuality and emotion on the menu, through this highly immersive collection of prose, poetry and essays.“* (Lynn Robinson, BMC President)

*“This fresh, eclectic mix of utility and art illustrates why we climb – alongside the how, where and what.”* (Natalie Berry, UKClimbing Editor in Chief)
