Sharp End Distributed Titles

Posted by Fred Knapp on 27th Jun 2017

One of the best aspects of working in the climbing industry (even if most of my job involves sitting in front of a computer) is working with climbers.

In addition to working with writers, we have the opportunity to distribute a handful of self-published titles. Most notably, Sharp End has distributed Arno Ilgner’s Rock Warriors Way and Espresso Lessons for nearly a decade.

Recently, we’ve added Tanya Bock’sCochise Stronghold: Climbing on the West Side—the first ever guide to that region. Tom Jones’ Zion Canyoneering has sold well for years, His company Imlay Canyon Gear has also published Noel DeNevers' Kolob Tragedy: The Lost Tale of a Canyoneering Calamity.

Luke Mehall’s many narratives are also part of our catalog: Great American Dirt Bags, The Climbing Zine, Climbing Out of Bed….

We also provide autographed copies of my good friend Lynn Hill’sClimbing Free; My Life in the Vertical World. Jim Thornburg’s Stone Mountains is a fantastic picture book of climbing throughout the USA.

Our greatest recent addition is the product of Australian photographer Simon Carter’s Onsight Publishing: The Best of the Red by Brendan Leader.
