California, Yosemite
Author: Don Lauria. Climb Year: N/A. Publication Year: 1971.

On February 4, 1971, Royal Robbins and I completed the second ascent of the Wall of the Morning Light. Short days, cold nights, and hot tea characterized the six-day ascent. (The Editor calls attention to this most remarkable ascent so modestly summarized by the Assistant Editor for California.)
