    The difference does not lie in the things that news does that novels do not do, but in the things that novels do that news cannot do.

Novels are not bound by the rules of reportage. Far from it. They're predicated on delivering experience.

Every piton crack, every handhold is a vertical one. Special techniques and equipment have evolved through absolute necessity.
