Big Up's Dosage series is the definitive annual portrait of climbing's state-of-the-art. Volume IV follows the biggest names in trad climbing, sport climbing and bouldering as they make historic ascents at spectacular locations around the world. Highlights include Tommy Caldwell's marathon El Capitan linkup, free climbing both The Nose (5.14a) and Freerider (5.12d) in under 24 hours (featured in a ten-page article, "Long Time Coming," in Alpinist Issue 15); Chris Sharma's first ascent of Dreamcatcher (5.14d) in Squamish, BC; Lisa Rands' first female ascents of scary grit routes in England's Peak District; and much more.
