Extreme Angles-

Our Focus
Extreme Angles publishes guidebooks by climbers, for climbers.

The information you need to get there, get up, and get back down to celebrate a wicked adventure

Understanding your location graphically is important to us, so you can expect the best maps and topos available

Part of what makes climbing unique is the history–the first ascentionists, their timing, and their stories

Our guides are full-color anthems to their destinations, and what better way to get psyched than a gripping shot of someone on a crux
About US
Bringing unique perspectives from wild places
Bearing the torch of history with modern style

Extreme Angles Publishing burst onto the climbing scene in 2003 as a young Zach Orenczak graduated from the University of Wyoming with a minor in Vedauwoo studies. With a digital camera and new laptop in hand, he built a company and lifestyle around his debut title, Fat Crack Country. Since then, our list of titles has grown to include books to some of the most notorious areas in the US with a focus on beta, history, user-friendliness, outstanding maps and compelling imagery.
