Nothing inspires a rock climber like finding a very tall, splendidly pointy rock tower, especially if no one has climbed it before. The finest sandstone towers on earth are found in the southwestern USA. In this book Steve "Crusher" Bartlett, a veteran of 25 years of desert exploration, documents the history of humans and their ascents of these formations.
