I recently got a call from Dean Fidelman, an old friend who´s working on another Yosemite climbing book with John Long. It will be in the spirit of their most recent book, The Stonemasters; which is an incredible book chronicling the life and times of some of rock climbings most influential characters. The Stonemasters were a group of mainly Californians who helped define the American view on rock climbing in the 70´s, primarily in Yosemite. Dean´s new book is going to focus on more modern times, in which I helped document a lot of notable Yosemite ascents.
Since most of my old climbing work is on slides, I spent a few days scanning around 200 slides to submit for the book, and I´m going to share some of my favorites here over the next few posts. This first group is a collection of various routes from all over Yosemite. Hope you enjoy!
