Carl Blaurock was climbing mountains in the days before nylon rope and factory-made pitons, in the days of edging nails instead of vibram soles, in the days of newspapers stuffed in shirts and pants to keep the wind from cutting through. A Climber's Climber is the chronicle of photographer Carl Blaurock's climbs in the Colorado Rockies and Wind River Mountains of Wyoming from 1909 to 1929. These are the stories Carl told to Barbara Euser in 1979 about the climbig adventures he had had more than fifty years before.

Carl was a dedicated mountaineer. He and his climbing partners had to invent their own climbing equipment, from pitons to crampons. Carl had a terrific understated sense of humor. This comes through clearly in the stories he told me of his climbing adventures, as well as the captions he wrote for his photographs. Fortunately for us, Carl was as dedicated a photographer as he was a climber. The photographs in A Climber's Climber provide an historical record of early climbing in the United States as well as a warm view of the community of climbing pioneers. It was my privilege to know Carl and listen to his stories. I believe readers will enjoy them as much as I did.About the Author:
