      EVENT DETAILS
      Hangdog Days: Conflict, Change, and the Race for 5.14

      Hangdog Days (Mountaineers) vividly chronicles the era when rock climbing exploded in popularity, attracting a new generation of talented climbers eager to reach new heights via harder routes and faster ascents. This contentious, often entertaining period gave rise to sport climbing, climbing gyms, and competitive climbing – indelibly transforming the sport. Jeff Smoot was one of those brash young climbers, and here he traces the development of traditional climbing “rules,” enforced first through peer pressure, then later through intimidation and sabotage. In his lively, fast-paced history, Smoot deftly brings to life the characters and events of this raucous, revolutionary time in rock climbing.
