New Yosemite Climbing Exhibit


Granite Frontiers: A Century of Yosemite Climbing.

June 7-October 27.
The Yosemite Museum.

Hosted by the Yosemite Climbing Association and the U.S. Park Service.

Writes Stewart Green: "Some of the displayed stuff includes a RURP (Realized Ultimate Reality Piton) used by Royal Robbins when he soloed the Muir Wall in 1968; Lynn Hill’s climbing shoes from her landmark 1993 free ascent of El Cap’s Nose; and two of the famous “Stoveleg” pitons, made from a wood stove’s legs, that were used on the first ascent of the Nose in 1958. You’ll also find historical videos and photographs, as well as a granite wall where your kids can plug cams and wired nuts in cracks."

P.S. Rumor has it this exhibit may one day become a museum in its own right, adjacent Camp IV, on the site of the old Yosemite Lodge Gas Station.
