Detailed Product Description
Denver, 1981, first edition. 90 pp, photos. Paperback, Very Good to Near Fine condition. 

A history of some of the great climbs of the Diamond Face of Longs Peak. Longs Peak is more than a rock, rising up in the midst of the Rockies. It has a history, and Randell documents part of that history in his book by presenting ten stories of special repute. He begins with the story of Old Man Gun, an Arapaho warrior who set an eagle trap on top of Longs Peak using a stuffed coyote.
 
Next he tells the story of how Lamb's Slide got its name. He proceeds from there to the story of how Rocky Mountain Jim wooed Isabella Bird at the place we now call Jim's Grove. There are seven more, all well written. You will enjoy reading them.
 
Randall interviewed many of the participants including Wayne Goss, Eric Aldrich, Jim Logan, Charlie Fowler, Duncan Ferguson, etc.
