Synnotts climbing career has followed the arc of professional climbing from its birth in the mid 1990s to what it has become today. As a result, this puts him in a unique position to explore the subject of risk and to reflect on the old climbing proverb: there are old climbers and there are bold climbers, but there are no old bold climbers. Finally, a gifted communicator known for his wit and dry sense of humor, Synnott is widely regarded as one of the best story-tellers in the business.
