Balls Pyramid is a ripping yarn of drama, danger and persistence. A tale of a playboy boat owner, an eccentric expedition doctor who kick-started Dick's first successful business, the 'extinct' stick insect and gripping accounts and photos by the world's best mountaineers. It's also a love story, inspired by the honeymooners that Dick and fellow Scouts witnessed on nearby Lord Howe Island. Balls Pyramid details Dick's battle to keep a special dream alive as bureaucrats moved in to ban climbing the stupendous spire.

This carefully researched, entertaining story tracks the evolution of Australian climbing over half a century and an all-consuming passion for Australia's greatest rock spire. The book will be available in bookstores from mid-January onwards, and Dick will be touring Australia in February doing radio interviews in relation to the book.
