New Book On Yosemite


Pilgrims of the Vertical: Yosemite Rock Climbers and Nature at Risk

From a review of a new book called Pilgrims of the Vertical:

“…’Pilgrims of the Vertica’l" is not a climbing memoir; Mr. Taylor quickly turns to discussing the origins of mountaineering as a gentleman's pastime during the Victorian era—this section has the feel of potted history—before moving on to his main concern and the best part of the book: the early days of rock climbing in Yosemite.”

(Looks like Oprah has a show on camping in Yosemite. It’ll be super crowded next year, so make your plans early.)
