Vertical Ethiopia: Climbing Toward Possibility in the Horn of Africa.
VERTICAL ETHIOPIA documents a climbing expedition to unexplored sandstone spires in northern Ethiopia. In March 2007, four women traveled to Ethiopia to discover if climbing might be the next frontier for this continuously evolving country.
Told through a series of vignettes that reveal what it means to climb, to travel, and to explore, Vertical Ethiopia looks closely at the intersections between adventure and culture, history and opportunity.
Vertical Ethiopia was published by Shama Publishing, an Ethiopian Publisher. The book is thus a collaborative African product with over half of the first print run having been sent to Addis Ababa for in-country sale. Majka talks about her commitment to this collaboration, and her experiences with working with Ethiopia press rules and regulations, on her book tour.
