About the authorsPam Neal is a native of Los Angeles. She discovered climbing while staying at Camp 4 in Yosemite. Pam loves finding and establishing good new sport routes with co-author Ben Chapman. It's inspiring to think of this mother of two and 4th grade teacher with a drill and crowbar in hand. Ben Chapman is a veteran climber, initially finding his footing on mountain expeditions. He found his love of establishing new trad lines in the Southern Sierra, where he would hand drill his bolt placements. Things are a little more tame now for this Southern California teacher, as he spends his weekends with a battery assisting his drilling efforts.
