Stone Crusade unveils the soul of American bouldering. John Sherman traces bouldering's history, profiles the participants, shows the geographic and geologic diversity of the nation's bouldering meccas, and shares stories formerly told only around the campfire or in the bars. The sport of bouldering compresses all the action, fear, pain, glory, and sublimity of rock climbing into several intense moves. As the author notes: "Bouldering is the distilled essence of climbing, the poetry of mountaineering."
