Description Transcript (29 pages) of interview by Matt Driscoll with Andrew Burr on May 10, 2010
Abstract Burr (b. 1977) grew up in Sonoma County, California. He is currently the Senior Contributing Photographer for Climbing Magazine. He started climbing while he was living in Tempe, Arizona, after finishing high school. Andrew moved to Salt Lake City in 1999 and immediately began to climb in the Wasatch Mountains. He discusses his first climbs in the Wasatch, including the West Slabs of Mount Olympus and the Schoolroom in Little Cottonwood Canyon. After earning a degree in Geological Engineering from the University of Utah and working for the USGS, Andrew decided to pursue a career as a climbing photographer. He discusses this difficult but rewarding transition and describes the recent evolution of No Star Tuesdays, an effort by a group of climbers to rediscover forgotten and out-of-the-way crags and climbs in the Wasatch. He professes a great interest in the history of climbing in the Wasatch, explaining how its depth of history more than makes up for its fractured rock. Interview is part of the Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project. Interviewer: Matt Driscoll
