Fifty Favorite Climbs: The Ultimate North American Tick List celebrates the accomplishments of today's most talented and prolific climbers. Based on in-person interviews by climbing journalist Mark Kroese, it showcases each climber's all-time favorite route. These are climbs each considers to be ultra classic. Climbs they recommend to their closest friends. Climbs they repeat just for fun. These are "the climbs to do," and they are collected here to inspire you. Fifty Favorite Climbs presents fifty classic rock and alpine routes in fifty chapters. Each chapter creates the complete climbing experience in four parts: a revealing climber profile, including a summary of his or her greatest accomplishments, insights into training regimes and climbing philosophies, and personal anecdotes; the story behind the climb and why it is that climber's favorite - recounting some of the greatest moments and dramatic ascents of this generation; a detailed route description provided by the climber, most including a personal "topo" map (many published here for the first time); and full-color photos by Corey Rich, Galen Rowell, Bradford Washburn, Gordon Wiltsie, and others among the "who's who" of outdoor photographers.

In 1977, well-respected climbing gurus Bob Godfrey and Dudley Chelton self-published Climb! Rock Climbing in Colorado. The first climbing book of its kind, Climb! detailed Colorado climbing history and suggested a new set of challenges for those fascinated by life on the edge. In addition, Greg Epperson's photography introduced wide-angle drama and on-rappel images. Twenty-five years later, Chelton has teamed up with former Climbing magazine photo editor and climber Jeff Achey to recapture the original book's influence and impact for a new generation of climbers.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 34.

Excerpt: In rock climbing, mountaineering and other climbing disciplines, climbers give a climbing grade to a route that concisely describes the difficulty and danger of climbing the route. Different aspects of climbing each have their own grading system, and many different nationalities developed their own, distinctive grading systems. There are a number of factors that contribute to the difficulty of a climb including the technical difficulty of the moves, the strength and stamina required, the level of commitment, and the difficulty of protecting the climber. Different grading systems consider these factors in different ways, so no two grading systems have an exact one-to-one correspondence. Climbing grades are inherently subjective - they are the opinion of one or a few climbers, often the first ascentionist or the author(s) of a guidebook. While grades are usually applied fairly consistently across a climbing area, there are often perceived differences between grading at different climbing areas. Because of these variables, a given climber might find a route to be either 'too hard' or 'too easy' for the grade applied. For free climbing, there are many different grading systems varying according to country. They include: The Yosemite Decimal System (YDS) of grading routes was initially developed as the Sierra Club grading system in the 1930s to rate hikes and climbs in the Sierra Nevada range. The rock climbing portion was developed at Tahquitz Rock in southern California by members of the Rock Climbing Se...
