Detailed Product Description

Modesto, 1983. 96 pp, 87 color photos. Pictorial hardcover - no dust jacket issued. Fine.

 SIGNED by 9 great climbers who were there: George Meyers (editor), Royal Robbins (publisher), Jim Bridwell, Glenn Denny, Tom Frost, Pete Takeda, Steve Roper, Allen Steck and John Long. (Long and Bridwell signed on the picture taken after their ascent of The Nose)

The first color photo book on Yosemite climbing. Essays by John Long, Molly Higgins, Billy Westby, etc. There is a great thread about this book on the website Supertopo.com.

This is a quote from one of the climbers who was there in the 1970s:
 
"George [Meyers] calls the book the “high school yearbook” of the valley in the 70’s. It captures like no other publication the spirit and energy of that era."

"Those of us who were there are fortunate that George had the gumption to take on the project and chronicle that time for our memories and our grandchildren. My favorite photo is George’s of Bachar and Gib Lewis on Orangutan Arch, with the climbers in the sun in front of looming, dark depths behind; a really fantastic picture."
 
Here is another quote from the Supertopo website:
 
"As a teenager in the 1970's growing up in the Bay Area and climbing in Yosemite I devoured every word and every photo in Yosemite Climber. It was really an inspirational book and I strived to do all the routes and follow in the footsteps of the pioneers and dirtbags shown in it. Even today I love to pull it out and get nostalgic about how much of an influence it had on my teen years."
