This was another one of those far-fetched, non-commercial art projects we could only afford to work on as a side deal so it took almost three years to finally complete. I was getting story revisions sent from iPhones on the side of El Cap.

There's little return on these big hard back books - printing costs a fortune now - and they are only possible when everyone pitches in with their best work, basically for greatly reduced prices or nothing at all, but it's always a rush to have the best material consolidated in one source so all of us can have something to dream on. Basically, the profits from the previous two Stonemaster books paid for this one. If this one makes any scratch we'll put it into the next one: Wall Rats.

Photo editor Dean Fidelman curated the finest, most evocative images of the last twenty years including suave and spectacular work from Chin, Ditto, Schaefer, Zak, Epperson, Rich, and others. And all our climbing icons really stepped up with their stories.

Design by Graham; editing by JL and Anders.

The thing came out absolutely killer.

Why'd this end up in campground? I'd think it'd do better in general or another thread.

good luck with it, though. Looks as if it has some good stuff in it.
