Abstract Zac Robinson (b. 1983) was born in 1983 in Fort Worth, Texas. Zac discusses his introduction to climbing as a student at Texas A&M and his subsequent development as a climber in Colorado and Utah. Zac initially moved to Salt Lake City in 2006 to ski at Alta and Snowbird and has lived here ever since. His first experiences in Utah include climbing at Indian Creek, where he honed his skills as a traditional climber. Zac worked at the Front climbing gym during his first year in Utah and immediately became involved in the climbing community through his acquaintances there. He discusses the effects and impact of guidebooks on the climbing culture and the adventuring aspect of climbing. Through his affiliation with No Star Tuesday, a group of Salt Lake climbers who climb no-starred routes from the Ruckman's guidebook, and the SLCA (Salt Lake Climbers Alliance), Zac has been deeply involved in assembling and mobilizing Salt Lake's climbing community.Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project.
