* Author donates 25% of his proceeds from the book to the Access Fund * 50 behind-the-climb stories * 50 profiles of contemporary elite climbers * 50 complete climbing route descriptions, many never published before * Over 100 spectacular full-color photos The Stories: Author Mark Kroese gets 50 of the most accomplished climbers of this generation to reveal their all-time favorite climbing routes. Renowned climber Tony Yaniro reveals his personal challenges and controversies as he ascents Scirocco, east face of the Sorcerer at the Needles in California. More inside scoop from Roxanna Brock, Mark Twight, Jared Ogden and other great climbers proves a riveting read. The Climbers: Each story includes a climber profile, garnered from hours of fascinating, thought-provoking, and often downright fun interviews. The climbers share personal anecdotes and offer their views on everything from ethics to style to training techniques. These well-crafted profiles give the reader a real sense of today's leading climbers. The Routes: From Newfoundland to Yosemite, Mexico to British Columbia, the favorite routes offers excellent climbing, stunning views, wild exposure, or spectacular summits. Each one includes a summary, description of the approach, the route itself, and the descent, along with first-ascent information, ratings, time required, recommended equipment, best season, special considerations, and references.
