About the book
First prize winner at the 2011 Banff Mountain Book Festival.
Desert Towers documents the history of climbers and their ascents of the wild and historic sandstone towers of the Colorado Plateau. The 350 pages of this book are lavishly illustrated with first-ascent photographs--many never seen in print before--and over two dozen contributed essays by the pioneering desert climbers of the last fifty years, many never previously seen in print. A must for any climber's coffee table.
