Yosemite in the Sixties by Glen Denny

Pretty cool: Now at Patagonia, find 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.
