Robbins’ climbing resume is staggering: First ascents on Yosemite’s Half Dome, El Capitan, as well as the Aiguille du Dru in Europe. Robbins is also the author of two seminal works on climbing, Basic Rockcraft and Advanced Rockcraft.  Here is the Wall Street Journal’s review.

CleggAAC Book Club
The AAC Book Club is celebrating its one-year anniversary! And what a year it’s been. We’ve had Tom Hornbein, Stephen Venables, Mark Obmascik, and other authors join us for book discussions.

For March, we’ll be featuring Beyond the Mountain, by Steve House. House is currently one of the world’s best alpinists. He and Vince Anderson forged a new direct line on Nanga Parbat’s Rupal Face in 2006.  The book was the 2009 Boardman-Tasker winner.
