Alpine Rock in the Range of Light (Sierra Nevada)
A journey through some of the classic middle-grade rock climbs in the Sierras, 40 years in the making. Featuring stunning images from climbing photo journalist Ian Brown and personal stories of “1,000 feet of perfect granite” on Mt Whitney, Charlotte Dome, Temple Crag, Tuolumne and Half Dome. The magical beauty of the Range of Light, the oldest living things on the planet, bears, permits, camping access, bolting and ethics etc. And preparing for the next challenge – big wall routes on El Capitan.
