Doug Robinson book signing and presentation - The Alchemy of Action
Join us for slideshow, discussion, and book signing, with legendary California guide and climber Doug Robinson, the father of clean climbing. His recent book The Alchemy of Action explores a question that has fascinated him and many of us for decades: Why Do We Climb? He finds the answer is in the psychedelic natural high we get from challenging physical exertion peppered with a dash of fear. Doug delves into the brain chemistry behind the adventurers euphoria, and shares the intriguing story behind why we are so much more than adrenaline junkies. This leads deep into the psyches of all adventure athletes as they push toward the ragged edge of human potential and return with shimmering new awareness from a heady brew of hormonal cocktail that includes the surprising ingredients of home-made organic psychedelic compounds.
