Description Transcript (32 pages) of interview by Matt Driscoll with Bill Boyle on 4 August 2010
Abstract Boyle (b. 1949) was born in Kentucky. His father was in the military and he was raised in the South. In 1976 he moved to Utah to attend the University of Utah and pursue a graduate degree in psychology. He quickly developed an interest in skiing and then, climbing. He describes trips to the City of Rocks, the first place he was involved in bolting sport climbing routes. While Boyle is an accomplished traditional climber, having climbed extensively in Yosemite and other traditional climbing destinations, it is the development of sport climbs in American Fork during the late 1980s, that cement his place in Utah climbing history. He talks about the challenges and rewards of bolting sports routes. Outdoor Recreation Project. Interviewer: Matt Driscoll
