Share We Are CA: Glen Denny and Yosemite in the Sixties

Event Details

Glen Denny scaled the big walls of Yosemite Valley with many of the climbing icons of the 1960s, including Warren Harding, Royal Robbins, Tom Frost, Yvon Chouinard, Chuck Pratt, and Layton Kor. The sixties were a golden age in Yosemite Valley, an era of first ascents and all-night parties in Camp 4, which was home to a small group of committed climbers who dropped out of the mainstream of work and society, perfecting their climbing skills and developing a unique social scene. Camera in hand, Glen captured both the gritty reality and the sunny optimism of those years on film. During this event, Glen Denny will give an insider’s view of the classic ascents and colorful characters of this important era through images, stories, and anecdotes.
