Yosemite - 'the Valley' - is the centre of big wall climbing. The huge, towering walls of El Capitan and Half Dome inspire climbers from across the globe. The giant cliffs of perfect granite have seen historic ascents from the world's best climbers, and draw visitors to test themselves on Yosemite's cliffs and routes. Some come for the great free routes, like Astroman, Nabisco Wall or Separate Reality, or the scores of easier routes. Others will visit the domes of Tuolumne, make expeditions to the peaks of the High Sierra or even spend a sojourn tackling the boulders, perhaps attempting Midnight Lightning, the most famous boulder problem in the world. This combination of peerless rock, fabulous sculptural cliffs, and hundreds of magnificent climbs is reverently described in Yosemite, a stunning coffee table book by world-renowned climber, Alex Huber, a leading player in Yosemite events. Huber provides a scintillating and exciting commentary that Heinz Zak illustrates with fabulous photographs that are both architecturally powerful and aesthetically superb. The book is enhanced by accompanying essays from past and present activists: Royal Robbins, Warren Harding, Jim Bridwell, Peter Croft, Lynn Hill, John Long, Mark Chapman, Thomas Huber, Jerry Moffatt, Dean Potter and Leo Holding. Yosemite is one of the most exciting rock climbing books ever published. Its gripping accounts are embellished by outstanding photographs that emphasis the splendor of the valley's scenery which has made it a world renowned destination for climbers, trekkers and tourists alike.
