I’ve been a fan of M.S. Tarot’s for years now, about four or five years. I think he’s a phenomenal writer, and when he’s got a groove going, reader beware, time will fly and before you know it your morning alarm will be going off. I’m also an outdoor junkie, and while big wall climbing is something I’ve never tried, I’ve always admired the people who take part in it and the culture of the dirtbag. So, Angel of El Capitan is a natural choice for me.
Angel is a young man, born of a family where he felt without a father figure, with parents he felt never cared for his own desires in life. The only man who ever filled that role was Alex, a climber. Now, a young man in his own right, Angel has set out with visions of leading the dirtbag lifestyle. His first stop is to visit Mary, Alex’s widow.
Mary isn’t what Angel remembered, but she’s just what he needs to tame his youthful exuberance. Under her tutelage, Angel will embark on an adventure of both the face of El Capitan and that of adulthood.
M.S. Tarot writes a tale with a high level of skill, weaving knowledge and story into one. He brings you the highs and the scent filled lows of learning to take on the dirtbag lifestyle while weaving in a tale of cougar and cub. If you love adventure on the big wall, this is not one to miss.
