Detailed Product Description
New York, Morrow, 1987, 1st edition. 298 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket, Fine condition.

Jeff Long's first climbing novel has become a classic of Yosemite climbing and the climbing lifestyle. The plot is based on true events that took place in Yosemite in the 1980s when a drug laden airplane crashed in the High Sierra, and the climbers got to the stash before the rangers did. Many fortunes were made, and a lot of airplane gas smelling weed was smoked in Camp 4 for a long time.

Set in beautiful Yosemite Valley, Long's first novel explores the passions and values of hard-core mountain climbers, here a band of mavericks living in tents or under National Park benches in Camp Site Four. When a ton and a half of marijuana is discovered in a plane downed in a mountain lake, the group of climbers, including veteran John Dog Coloradas, ascends to claim the bounty. Their score makes national headlines, along with pictures of the pilot's body.

But bad fortune haunts the climbers afterward: young Tucker, the purest and best among them, takes a mysterious, fatal fall after an extraordinary climb; Bullseye, camp sage and '60s holdover, is found battered and broken at the bottom of a cliff; the camp bully, Kresinski, becomes even nastier.

Finally, John returns to the lake with Kresinski to confront the danger stalking the climbers and the destructive forces within himself. Long explores the mythic properties of climbing and the situation of essentially solitary men brought together in a common pursuit. Climbers will relish this rapturous and penetrating, slightly macho paean to their passion.
