Pilgrims of the Vertical: Yosemite Rock Climbing and the Nature of Risk (Joseph Taylor)
Wednesday, April 27 7:30 PM
Main Lounge, Moulton Union

Few things suggest rugged individualism as powerfully as the solitary mountaineer testing his or her mettle in the rough country, yet the long history of wilderness sport complicates this image. Joseph Taylor will discuss the early years of technical climbing in North America, paying special attention to events in Yosemite Valley. Through Yosemite climbers we see how an intensely social pastime evolved into an activity that emphasized individual achievements and isolated, wilderness experiences. Joseph (Jay) Taylor is one of the nation's leading environmental historians. He is associate professor of history and geography at Simon Fraser University.
