Detailed Product Description
California, 2010, 1st edition. 108 pp, many b/w photos, illustrations, glossary, bibliography. Paperback (only edition). Fine.

The highly anticipated second volume of Royal Robbins multi-volume autobiography. Royal Robbins: Fail Falling is the second volume in the series and tells Royals historic early first ascents, including Half Dome and Sentinel Rock in Yosemite Valley, and his daring climb of the Open Book route at Tahquitz Rock.  It's a swift, adventurous read that leaves you feeling as if you had accompanied Royal on his thrilling climbs. 
 
The first volume in the series, To Be Brave, attracted positive reviews including Rock and Ice Magazine, Wall Street Journal Alpinist Review, Scouting Magazine and Mountain Gazette. Noted climber John Long wrote, If theres a finer memoir, written by an American climber, I havent seen it. Fail Falling promises to generate even more credible reviews, awards, and tremendous buzz. Tommy Caldwell writes in the Foreword, Fail Falling makes it apparent why Royal Robbins is considered by many to be climbings greatest legend.
 
Royal Robbins' accomplishments as rock climber and adventurer are legendary. An early advocate of boltless, pitonless clean climbing, he did much to transform the climbing culture to minimize the human impact on the vertical wilderness and protect its natural features. As a rock climbing pioneer, he broke through existing standards to create wholly new skill and difficulty levels. In the 50's, 60's and into the 70's, Robbins established one daring new climb after another, among them many revered classics on Yosemite's Half Dome and El Capitan.
 
Robbins has written two seminal books, Basic Rockcraft and Advanced Rockcraft, which showcased his skill and climbing ethic and inspired a whole new generation of climbers. Combined, the two books have sold over 400,000 copies. He is also the subject of a biography, Spirit of the Age, written by Pat Ament. Richly entertaining and personal, To Be Brave, the first volume of Robbins' life story, holds the reader breathless with tales of adventure. But for Robbins, the real adventure is the inner one. By focusing upon the minds, emotions, and spirits of those involved, he relates climbing escapades in terms everyone can understand.
