The Yosemite Big Walls guidebook is from the “big wall master” Chris McNamara, and is an amazing guidebook, who has personally climbed and painstakingly documented every route. This is the 2011 third edition (contains an extra 14 routes, from the previous edition), which covers 64 of the best big wall routes in Yosemite. Included are routes on El Capitan, Half Dome, Liberty Cap, Leaning Tower, Mt Watkins, Lost Arrow Spire, Ribbons Falls and Washington Column.
