Yosemite Valley is the leading center for world rock climbing. Famous figures in the sport like John Salathe, Royal Robbins and Warren Harding have immortalized their names in the granite of the valley. The giant walls of El Capitan and Half Dome retain a powerful appeal and climbers from around the world visit to pay homage to one of their many big wall climbs. There are scores of easier classic climbs to be done too, or one can tackle one of the great free routes like Astroman, Nabisco Wall or Separate Reality. Others will visit the domes of Tuolumne, make expeditions to the peaks of the High Sierra or even spend a sojourn tackling the boulders, perhaps attempting Midnight Lightning, the most famous boulder problem in the world.

Alexander Huber, who is deeply involved in today's dynamic Yosemite scene, has drawn from the key histories and other books and magazine accounts to produce a commentary on over 100 years of climbing history from the earlier pioneering epics to today's super athletic big wall feats. His fast-moving account is illustrated by Heinz Zak's outstanding photographs and given luster by key accounts of major climbs from Warren Harding, Royal Robbins, Jim Bridwell, Mark Chapman, Jerry Moffatt, John Long, Peter Croft, Lynn Hill, Thomas Huber, Dean Potter and Leo Houlding.

Yosemite is one of the most exciting rock climbing books every published. Its gripping accounts are embellished by outstanding photographs that emphasize the splendor of the Valley's rock, mountain and waterfall scenery which has made it world-renowned among climbers, trekkers and tourists alike.About the Author:Alexander Huber, born 1968 in Trostberg, is one of the most successful German mountaineers. The most important milestones in his career include extreme climbing tours in big caves, such as the ascent of the westface of the 7000-meter-high Latok II in the Karakorum, and alpine climbing in the Alps, such as the Route Bellavista (11-) at the Westliche Zinne. But many of his big successes Alexander celebrated in the Yosemite Valley.

In 1995, he was the first climber after Lynn Hill to accomplish a to accomplish a redpoint ascent of El Capitan. In 1998, 2000, and 2001 he completed four more free ascents there: El Nino, Free Rider, Golden Gate, and El Corazon.
