Barry (Bubba) Blanchard’s The Calling is expected out in September, 2014. Blanchard is one of Canada’s most accomplished alpine climbers. First ascents include East Face of Fay, North Face of North Twin, Andromeda Strain, The Wild Thing, Infinite Patience on Emperor Face on Mount Robson, Striving for the Moon on Mount Temple and many more. Blanchard’s much anticipated memoirs will include untold stories, classic international climbs such as the Rupal Face and in the Alps and hopefully the full story about being treed by a grizzly bear with a client. The book is being published by Patagonia Books.
