ISBN 1-58592-087-8


A useful and accurate approach information to the crags considered to be the lesser-known home of modern American rock climbing. A wide selection of routes in the grade range 5.3 to 5.11 including many fie star classics. Includes a decent historical summary on the origins of the Yosemite Deciman System (YDS) modern gradings system in use across the USA. This said, the routes can be somewhat contrived and their starts difficult to find. [Dan Matthewman]
