Pat Ament on El Capitan in 1967

“Pat Ament is the poet laureate of American mountaineering”–Jim McCarthy

“I believe Pat Ament to be preeminent among American climbing authors”–Tom Frost

“Pat’s story is of a man who is, among many other things, a climber. His is a story of happiness and sorrow, of dreams and disillusionment, of passion and enthusiasm, and of love, a love of climbing, and for life, and for the people in his life”–Royal Robbins

(Gary Landeck is the director of the American Alpine Club Library and is assisting Mr. Ament by managing this blog)
