Off the Wall: Death in Yosemite

Michael P. Ghiglieri and Charles R. Farabee (2007) Puma Press

Not a climbing book per se, but full of lovely climbing legends, lore and gore, including some firsthand stories, from a coauthor that did a stint as a ranger in the Valley.

Yosemite Topropes

Rob Floyd (1999) Sharp End Publishing

Purchase this book

Now you too can bring your kids to the rocks. Floyd takes a unique approach to climbing books, using interesting little icons to represent information from the slope of the climbs to whether or not to bring your children along. An interesting book, though a little bit too small for a climbing region (Yosemite) containing thousands of routes.

Rock Climbing Yosemite's Select

Don Reid (1998) Falcon Guides ISBN-13: 978-1575401157

Purchase this book

A fairly good compilation about Yosemite's "favorite" climbs. Unfortunately, this also usually means that you'll wait in line on most of the lower difficulty climbs. The information in the book is concise and accurate, though often approach information is a little cryptic.
