Detailed Product Description
Ventura, 2007, 1st edition.  Published by Patagonia. 9 x 13 inches.  144 pps, 126 b/w photos.  Foreword by Yvon Chouinard. Introduction by Rick Ridgeway. Edited by Tom Adler. Text by Glen Denny, Steve Roper, Yvon Chouinard, Rick Ridgeway. Winner of the Banff Mountain Festival Mountain Image Prize 2007. The only difference between the New York edition and the Patagonia edition is the image on the dust jacket. Large format hardcover with plastic protector. Protector is a bit age darkened, book is Fine.

A new book of spectacular photographs of the golden age of Yosemite, the 1960s, taken by Glen Denny, a Yosemite pioneer. Large format photos, many double page spread are 18"x13". Perhaps the finest photo book of Yosemite's golden age ever done!
 
Glen Denny's extraordinary book of rare black-and-white photographs of Yosemite Valley climbers. Originally inspired by the work of Ansel Adams, Denny quickly mastered the effects of light on rock but his special gift is for these portraits of climbers in their element, for revealing the climber's face in the unselfconscious moment of obsession on a route, of pleasure in camp, of awe to be in such a place. He conveys the culture of Camp 4 in the sixties as well as the spirit of the big-wall climbs. Many of these photographs have never before been published.
 
The sheer granite walls of Yosemite Valley have drawn a lot of visitors over the years. In the late 1950s and through the 60s, they galvanized a dedicated group of rock climbers, who saw their glacier-polished faces as the purest challenge. When those climbers first made their way up Half Dome and El Capitan, they ushered in a new era--over the course of the 60s, they developed techniques, tools and philosophies that would change the sport forever. In the 60s spirit of social exploration, a small group of committed climbers eventually dropped out of the mainstream of work and society to take up residence at Camp 4, perfecting their skills and developing a unique scene.
 
This austere, boulder-strewn campground became the epicenter of the climbing world. In between spectacular feats carried out on the walls, it served both as a launching pad for further adventures and a refuge from them. Here, plans were made, teams were formed and life was lived. The significance of Camp 4 was recently recognized in its placement on the National Register of Historic Places.
 
Photographer and filmmaker Glen Denny was among its denizens, and captured his fellow climbers' personalities and parties, aspirations and preparations, loves and dreams in absolutely stunning, and sometimes death-defying, black-and-white. This majestic visual record of Yosemite in the 60s includes a foreword by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, an introduction by Rick Ridgeway, whom Rolling Stone has called 'the real Indiana Jones,' and a wealth of previously unpublished photographs. 
 
(The book is large and heavy so Priority Mail is $10, International Airmail will be $25 to Canada, $40 all other countries. But we can ship a few additional books and include them at that flat rate, $25 or $40)
