Details

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is one of the most spectacular big wall and alpine climbing arenas in the United States - home to demanding Grade VI aid lines, classic big wall free climbs and shorter, more moderate excursions alike. The Black Canyon is steeped in a rich history of boldness that befits its wild nature. Years of climbing, interviews and research by Vic Zeilman has led to a world class climbing guide that strives for detailed and accurate route information while telling the stories of half a century in the Black!

• 512 pages packed with full color wall photos and action shots, detailed pitch by pitch descriptions, first ascent stories and information, historical photography and more

• Unique hand drawn topos for over 150 of the best routes

• Information for dozens of previously undocumented lines

• Essays from first ascentionists and long-time locals

• The only comprehensive guidebook to the Black!
