While on an expedition on Bulgaria’s Pirin Mountains, a serious accident happened when Jack Kantorczyk’s climbing partner fell 60 feet, a plunge the author says would usually end up fatal. Fortunately, in their case, it had a happy ending, thanks to events Kantorczyk would describe as mysterious and unusual, a close call that would inspire him to write about “The Rock Climbers” (published by Xlibris), an account of adventures and near-fatal experiences that promises to take readers to the danger zone.

Kantorczyk’s book follows five young rock climbers ascending the Pirin Mountains to ready themselves for a later expedition up the highest mountain of the world. This trek is meant to prepare them for truly stressful climbing conditions, checking their mental and physical usefulness and their ability to stay lonely in the harsh mountain environment. During this climb, they must prove themselves able to live together and help each other in perfect harmony and friendship, and, most importantly, prove that they can climb along often unstable and treacherous rocky vertical walls. Aside from the environment, they must overcome stress and physical exhaustion while being aware that the border between life and death is often very thin up there.

“The Rock Climbers” depicts the author’s passion for the sport as well as his experiences. His writing is meant for fellow enthusiasts while at the same time shows the general public why people are often willing to risk their own lives by climbing dangerous peaks.

In his own words, Kantorczyk “shows how rock climbing looks like from a really close distance, as well as the book exposes the climbers’ true characters and their personal feelings at the time when they are in immediate danger, and at the moment when they are threatened during climbing by losing their lives.”
