Topic Author's Original Post - Nov 28, 2009 - 06:00pm PT
Steve Grossman puts a lot of time and energy into scanning, posting, explaining, recounting tales of and sharing memories and knowledge about the history of climbing in the US, Europe and around the world. Many influential and important climbers chime in on these threads. They are a treasure trove of information and one of the greatest things about the SuperTopo web site and forum.

I figured it would be handy to have the links listed in one place.

Here's a list of links to Steve's posts. Feel free to add to it as you find more, I've gone back about 1500 threads to compile these.

You should post this to the TR forum when the list is fairly complete, as well. Maybe simplify the title to make it easy to find in the search function.

"Grossman Historical Links" or something.

Great idea, Pate!

Oh - thanks, Pate. And thanks so much for the wonderful compilation of articles here.
Just wish I knew how to reach Steve. It's a "snow day" here in Colorado Springs, but I'm safe, warm and well - you be too, Gnarly Bill
