Chris McNamara
About the Author
Climbing Magazine once computed that three percent of Chris McNamara’s life on Earth had been spent on the face of El Capitan – an accomplishment that left friends and family pondering Chris’s sanity. He has climbed El Capitan more than 70 times and holds nine big wall speed climbing records. In 1998 Chris did the first Girdle Traverse of El Capitan, an epic 75-pitch route that begs the question, “Why?”

Outside Magazine called Chris one of “the world’s finest aid climbers.” He is the winner of the 1999 Bates Award from the American Alpine Club and founder of the American Safe Climbing Association, a nonprofit group that has replaced over 5000 dangerous anchor bolts. He is a graduate of UC Berkeley and serves on the board of the ASCA and the Rowell Legacy Committee. He has a rarely updated adventure journal, maintains BASEjumpingmovies.com, and also runs a Lake Tahoe home rental business.

+1 for "Ghost" who's CV includes - among other things , being editor of the CAJ for years, editor of an international trade mag now , author of the novel "Vortex" and editor of two of my tomes of garbage :-)


Don't forget that Michael Kennedy & Katie Ives both post to Supertopo.

"Mighty Hiker" , Anders O, wrote a guidebook to Squamish about 30 yrs ago.

Thanks for including me on the list. I'm kind of a hen in the foxhouse.
