Climber plans to build Yosemite museum

by Tom Markiewicz on April 6, 2005

Ken Yager is planning a museum that will focus on Yosemite Valley’s role in the development of modern rock climbing.

If Chamonix in the French Alps is a birthplace of the sport and Everest its most celebrated conquest, then Yosemite is the Cape Canaveral of climbing, a place where Americans rocketed past the dominant Europeans in the 1950s and ’60s with new techniques, tools and raw tenacity.

Yager has gathered a collection of 5,000 artifacts including early versions of nuts and cams. The plan is to construct the museum near Camp 4.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
