Detailed Product Description
1992, 1st edition. 209 pp, b/w illustrations. Softcover (only edition). Near Fine.

Memoir of one of our greatest climbers, who more than anybody followed Chouinard's prediction to hone his big wall skills in Yosemite Valley and take them around the world. Bridwell describes his climbs of the Eiger, Moose's Tooth, El Cap, Half Dome, Nose in a Day. 

Blurb From John Long, Yosemite Climber
When I started climbing seriously in the early 70s, Jim Bridwell was the biggest name in rock climbing. From Yosemite to Crag Dru, from Patagonia, to the Canadian Rockies, Bridwell was the man. Now, over twenty years later, he is even more the man. He redefined the sport. He's done more than anyone else. He's been everywhere. And somehow he is still alive. But then, Jim Bridwell is the man. The rest of us are just climbers. 

Blurb from Ned Gillette, Olympic Skier, Mountain Climber
 
We wondered: 'would the old fox tell all?' Climbing adventures is the answer. It's a direttissimo into the heart and muscle, the indissoluble spirit, the full speed antics of Bridwell. No other alpine rock climber has been as daring a visionary, as unswerving. Or has had as much fun. It's total recall with white knuckles. 
 
Blurb from Royal Robbins, Author/Yosemite Climber
Jim is a rich and colorful character, a man of passion, intensity, and honesty. His reputation as a climber rests upon solid achievements across a smorgasbord of climbing disciplines. His first book describes Jim's alpine adventures in his own engaging and inimitable style.
