I have lived in the Eastern Sierra for over 40 years, says Lewis. “I always loved climbing guides, so when I started climbing in the Owens River Gorge it felt natural to try to keep track of what climbers were doing, as there was no book.
Maximus Press was launched in 1990 with the publication of the pamphlet “Owens River Gorge Climbs”. Garage-style in appearance, this publication was nevertheless accurate, concise and easy to use. Eighteen years later after considerable improvements, Maximus Press continues to strive to produce the most useful and state-of-the-art guidebooks possible. The knowledge base of our editorial staff comes from years of experience climbing, exploring and living in the Eastern Sierra. You can count on our commitment to deliver high-quality books. Enjoy!
