The third volume, and last, in what was a planned series of seven, of Robbins’ life story. This chronicles the years 1957-1964 which saw Royal’s thrilling adventures during the Golden Age of Yosemite Valley. “The book is about what happened to me after the first ascent of the face of Half Dome. It covers getting drafted and two years in the Army. We make the 2nd ascent of the Nose of El Capitan as well as the first ascent of the Salathe Wall on that same great rock. I meet Liz and we get married. I climb the Direct Route on Half Dome and make other Yosemite firsts. And in 1963 we make the first ascent of the Southeast Face of Mt. Proboscis in Canada. The book ends with the successful ascent of the North America Wall on El Capitan in October 1964.”
