Stone Mountains: Jim Thornburg's New Book Release and Signing at BIW
For the past 26 years, Jim Thornburg has been climbing. For the past 20 of those years he’s been photographing his climbing travels. A highly published photographer, Thornburg has climbed at and photographed over 200 different crags. Recently, Thornburg made a collection of the best areas in North America. "Stone Mountains: North America’s Best Crags" ($60 www.jimthornburg.com
) is a 320-page review of 35 different North American crags with introductions by local climbers and a great selection of photos from the areas.
Dougald MacDonald, the Editor in Chief of Climbing Magazine, reviewed the book saying, “Don’t expect a guidebook, Thornburg warns in his intro—it’s a psyche book, pure and simple. And once you pore over these pages, I defy you not to start dreaming of road trips: Chattanooga? Zion? Maple? El Portrero? Gas up the car! “
On Dec 2nd, Jim Thornburg will be signing his new book at Berkeley Ironworks from 7pm- 9pm. Stop by the gym and check out an awesome new climbing book from a great local photographer and climber.
