Valley Free Climbs includes over
230 of the best routes in Yosemite Valley from 16-pitch trad
climbs to one-pitch sport routes. While many hard Yosemite testpieces
are included, this book focuses on topropes, crags, and multi-pitch
climbs in the 5.4-5.9 range. Includes formerly obscure climbs
to provide more options for avoiding crowds. As in all SuperTopo
books, the authors personally climbed and documented each climb
with meticulous care to create the most detailed and accurate
topos ever published.
