Summary, etc.:
"Before the first free ascent of the Dawn Wall on El Capitan captivated the world, a rag-tag group of innovators build the sport of modern American rock climbing from a makeshift home base in Yosemite's Camp 4. Photographer Glen Denny was a key figure in that Golden Age of climbing, capturing pioneering feats on camera while tackling challenging ascents himself. Now, in prose both exhilarating and poignant, he gives us true tales of colorful characters and a legendary locale, of brotherhood and sky-high quest, and of living cheap and dodging park rangers" -- Book cover.
