About the Author
Royal Robbins was a seminal figure in North American climbing in the 1950s and 60s. His notable first ascents of Yosemite s big walls inspired a climbing revolution that lives on to this day. Robbins many daring exploits include the world s first ascent of Yosemite s famous Half Dome Face in 1957. It was on this and other magnificent granite towers that Robbins pioneered his own form of rock climbing. His technique was environmentally friendly, personally challenging and today would be described as an extreme sport . The rock faces he climbed were preserved and not scarred by pitons and bolts that were typically used by climbers back in the day. Today, Robbins is a legend in climbing circles and with good reason. The three books in the My Life series make for fascinating reading as we peer into the mind of a mixed-up kid from the streets of 1940 s LA, who teaches himself how to become an ace climber.
