Yosemite 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.

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.

Features available in both Print Books and eBooks:  
Most accurate & detailed topos ever!
First ascent history by Steve Roper
Nearly every route personally climbed by the authors

Reviewers and Yosemite Climbing Experts praise:
  Yosemite Valley Free Climbs is the definitive topo guide to the world’s greatest rock routes. Packed full of useful tips from climbers in the know and with clear and accurate topos, it is the free climber’s Rand McNally to the vertical world.”
- Duane Raleigh, Rock & Ice Magazine

  “SuperTopo offers a clear and concise format and sets the stage for your own adventure with history to each route.”
- Conrad Anker, World Renowned Climber and Mountaineer

  Yosemite Valley Free Climbs brings back the joy and opportunity for exploratory Valley climbing adventure like that which was enjoyed using Roper’s old red and green guides—namely, finding our way to the top of Yosemite’s great formations via the natural and classic lines of our pioneer predecessors.”
– Tom Frost, Yosemite Climbing Legend

  SuperTopo has done it again! Fabulous drawings and pictures keep you from hunting to find the climbs. Now you can be a ‘Valley Virgin’ and still get in a ton of climbing.”
– Hans Florine, World Speed Climbing record holder for El Capitan’s The Nose route
