Synopsis : This beautiful coffee-table book documents top climbing photographer Jim Thorburg's 20-year tour of America's best rock-climbing areas. A whopping 320 pages of artful and beautifully printed photographs from 35 spectacular rock-climbing and bouldering venues take the reader on a visual journey sure to inspire adventure for years to come. The photographs, paired in each area with a local's perspective, combine to provide a visceral introduction to each of North America's best, most visually aesthetic and singular crags.
California-based photographer Jim Thornburg estimates he has spent 23,000 hours over the past 20 years capturing images of climbers, and his extraordinary effort has produced a prodigious body of inspirational work. Now Thornburg has selected the best of his uncounted images to produce "Stone Mountains: North America s Best Crags", a 320-page celebration of 35 crags spanning the continent, from Squamish to the Gunks. Each area is introduced by a local climber or frequent visitor and is illuminated by up to 24 pages of pure inspiration. Don t expect a guidebook, Thornburg warns in his intro it s a psyche book, pure and simple. And once you pore over these pages, I defy you not to start dreaming of road trips: Chattanooga? Zion? Maple? El Portrero? Gas up the car! --Dougald MacDonald, Climbing Magazine
Jim Thornburg is the Pablo Picasso of climbing photography. His eye for rock s cleanest, most colorful lines, peerless technical skill, and knack for getting the most action-packed, sexiest (but natural) poses out of his climbers make this book a must-have for anyone with rock on the brain. Want to get fired up about the abundance of killer climbing in North America? Look no farther than Stone Mountains. --Matt Samet, Editor, Climbing Magazine
