Detailed Product Description
Colorado, 1977, 1st edition. 275 pp, many b/w photos, index. Larger format photo and text history of Colorado rock climbing. Orange cloth hardcover, missing front cover and spine - essentially just the guts of the book with the loose back cover plus a chipped and incomplete dust jacket. The signature page is the prize. Good condition.

Inscribed to "Jimmy" and signed by eight great climbers: Michael Covington, Texas Bossier, Jim Erickson, Tom Frost, Bob Culp, Doug Robinson, Roger Briggs, and Pat Ament

 

This book is large format, so extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
 
In this book Godfrey and Chelton have brought together a collection of gripping tales of Colorado's most legendary first ascents, from 1870 to the present day. Many of the accounts are presented first-hand by the pioneer climbers who did them. Tom Hornbein describes the Northwest Passage and the Hornbein Crack. Ray Northcutt gives his version of what really happened on the first ascent of the Diagonal, and also describes his ascent of what may well have been America's first 5.10 climb.

Bob Culp recounts the story of the Northwest face of Chief's Head a climb which went unrepeated for eleven years. Royal Robbins writes of his amazing one-day ascents of the Diamond with Layton Kor. Kor describes the first winter climb of the Diamond. Pat Ament tells the story of the first ascent of the infamous Supremacy Crack.

John Gill ponders the finer points of bouldering. Bill Forest shares his experiences on Colorado's big walls. Jim Erickson writes of the first free ascent of the Naked Edge, and Steve Wunsch tells of the first free ascents of Kloeberdanz, Jules Verne, and the Psycho roof.

Through these accounts the evolution of Colorado climbing is presented in its entirety; from the carefree scrambles of the early days, through the ''piton era'' of the fifties and sixties, to the hardest free climbs of the seventies.
