Bill is also an author, having co-authored with Craig DeMartino “After the Fall: A Climber’s True Story of Facing Death and Finding Life”.
This inspiring book is about: “Craig DeMartino who was 100 feet up a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park when―with one step―his 13 years of rock climbing experience and 15 pounds of gear plummeted with him to the ground. Expert climbers say that if you fall 10 feet you have a 10% chance of dying, a 20% chance at 20 feet, 30% at 30, and so on. Craig fell 100 feet. By basic calculation, Craig should not be alive today. But he is. For anyone who has been knocked down or run over by life, After the Fall not only offers an engaging read but also provides a clear message of hope: sometimes the greatest gift we can receive isn’t just healing, but the power to endure.”
