Yosemite Exploration: Experience the Climbers’ World
This is a rare opportunity to experience the essence of climbing in Yosemite, hear how it has developed into a world-class sport, and even partake in an interactive equipment demonstration. You won’t rope up and climb, but your expert climbing guide, Doug Robinson, will provide hands-on demonstrations of the modern nylon ropes and hardware that keep Yosemite climbers safe on those sheer granite walls. Doug has been climbing in Yosemite since the Golden Age of the 1960s, and he will enliven the experience with personal stories about the big walls, the clean climbing revolution, free climbing and soloing. You’ll have insider access into Yosemite Valley hot spots to feel the climbing experience at close range. This experience is interactive, so bring your curiosity! And, ultimately, it’s about transcendence, as Doug shares insight into his lifelong quest to understand exactly why people climb mountains.
