Fisher Towers

This is the original account of one of the classic climbs of North America and the largest free standing tower in the US. The image below is one page from the November 1962 National Geographic. The rest of the scanned pages are here (scroll down about 3/4 of the way) and here. Modern description here including this great quote on the Sundevil Chimney route:  “Climb 5.9 mud up the chimney past a few bolts. This is one of the most interesting pitches in the desert. Climb light on the mud!”
