About US

Bearing the torch of history with modern style
Unique Perspective from Wild Places

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.
