9781493024988: On the Nose: A Lifelong Obsession with Yosemite's Most Iconic Climb

Hans Florine embodies the genius of "and"—collaborative and competitive, fast and safe, audacious and disciplined, visionary and quantitative. The themes that run through Florine's 101 ascents of Yosemite's most iconic route can benefit people who will never climb a rock, indeed anyone inspired by the idea of a passionate, lifelong quest of any type. —Jim Collins, author of Good to Great

Hans Florine is a big-wall climbing legend in his own time. He holds the speed record on the Nose route of El Capitan, a 3,000-foot granite cliff in Yosemite Valley that’s considered the Everest of the rock-climbing world. Ascending the Nose takes most climbers anywhere from 12 to 96 hours. Florine, along with climbing partner Alex Honnold, does it in an astounding 2.5 hours.

But Florine’s story is not one of super-human athletic prowess; it’s one of persistence and dogged determination. In 30 years of climbing, he's ascended the Nose a mind-blowing, death-defying 100 times, more than anyone else ever has, and most likely ever will. In On the Nose, Florine describes the most dangerous, pivotal, and inspirational of those climbs, providing a rare look inside the adrenaline-charged world of competitive climbing in Yosemite Valley. He tells of his very first attempt on the Nose, which ended in failure after 14 hours, his friendships (and rivalries) with climbing’s most colorful personalities, and his battle with Dean Potter to secure the definitive speed record on the Nose—an endeavor that’s been called the wildest competition known to man.

Perhaps most interestingly, Florine attempts to answer the question why. Why would anyone undertake one of the greatest adventure epics on earth 100 times? His answers provide unique insights on how to live a satisfying life, how to achieve big goals, and how an otherwise ordinary guy can become a rock star.

Descripción ROWMAN LITTLEFIELD, United States, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Nose is the most famous rock climb on earth, tracing the 3,000-foot prow of the granite formation known as El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Climbers didn t figure out how to scale it until 1958- five years after Everest. In 1989, a young climber named Hans Florine attempted to ascend the Nose, an effort that took him 46 hours. He would go on to climb it an unprecedented 101 times (and counting) and whittle his total effort down to a mere 2.5 hours-a feat that has no parallel in modern outdoor sport. Florine s story is at once an audacious adventure that spans nearly three decades, providing a rare look inside the adrenaline-charged world of big-wall climbing in Yosemite Valley, and a testament to the power of persistence.
