Detailed Product Description

San Francisco, Sierra Club, 1979, 1st edition. 159 pp, col ills. Quarto. Large format hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Very Good to Near Fine. 

Written when Galen was still more of a climber than a professional photographer and author. More specifically, a climber of Californoia's Yosemite and High Sierra. 

Large format hardcover, extra postage may be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail. 

Climb of Keeler Needle, ski mountaineering and a solo one day ascent of Mt. McKinley. Some of Rowell's greatest adventures: a climb of Keeler Needle, Bear Creek Spire, the South Face of Half Dome, a winter ski traverse of the White Mountains, Hetch Hetchy, Moose's Tooth, Cirque of the Unclimbables, around Mt McKinley on Skis with Ned Gillette, and a solo one day ascent of Mount McKinley. 

GALEN ROWELL and his photographs won many awards including the Ansel Adams Award. His photographs have been exhibited at the International Center of Photography, the California Academy of Sciences, the Smithsonian, the Ansel Adams Gallery, etc. Rowell wrote several excellent books and his work has been published in many prominent magazines. Sadly, Rowell and his wife, Barbara, were killed in a small plane crash in 2002 approaching Bishop, California.

Rowell had an amazing record of climbing and exploration: Over 100 first ascents of routes in Yosemite Valley and High Sierra Nevada. First one-day ascent of Mt McKinley, aka Denali, in Alaska. First ascent of Great Trango Tower in the Karakoram. First ski ascent-descent of Mustagh Ata First ascent of NE Ridge of Amne Machin (second ascent of the mountain by few days). First ski circuit of Denali About 40 expeditions to remote peaks including Nun Kun, K2, Mount Everest, various Karakoram peaks & spires, Patagonia, Kilimanjaro, Gasherbrum II, Alaska, Yukon, Canadian Rockies, etc.
