Alone on the Wall
NY, Norton, (2016). Signed by the author, whose 2017 free solo ascent of Yosemite's El Capitan (via Freerider) is a pinnacle of human athletic achievement and nerve. This book pre-dates that climb, because Honnold was a rock icon before Free Solo (the film of the El Cap climb), having free solo-ed Zion’s Moonlight Buttress and Yosemite’s Half Dome (among many other climbs). This book was reissued in an expanded edition after the El Cap climb, but signed copies of the true first are rare. (The internet posts the publication date as 2015: we have unconfirmed reports of a British or Australian paperback from that time, but the first printing of the first American edition is 2016.) Fine in a very near fine dust jacket, with a sticker removal shadow on the front panel. No other signed copies of the first edition available online. [#035979] $250

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
