The timeless, natural beauty of Yosemite Valley National Park has inspired generations of climbers the world over, and its granite cracks and domes rank among the planet's best. In this volume, and in its companion guide, Yosemite Big Walls, Don Reid gives the rock climber the best, most thorought treatment of the region to date. Yosemite Free Climbs caters to climbers who want to deal more with the chalkbag that the haulbag. Free and mostly free routes are featured; however, long and difficult lines where big wall logistics intercede--as on Southern Bell and Karma on Half Dome, and Escape from Freedom on Mt. Watkins--can be accessed within these pages as well. Detailed topos, cliff photos and accurate route descriptions establish Yosemite Free Climbs as the number one resource for free climbing in Yosemite. Park access, camping and concessions information, along with an illuminating analysis of climbing accidents by ranger John Dill, make this guide indispensible for all climbers venturing into the valley.Reid, Don is the author of 'Rock Climbing Yosemite Free Climbs' with ISBN 9780934641593 and ISBN 0934641595.
