The team at Falcon Guides is proudly cheering for author and climber Hans Florine as he prepares to make his record-doubling 100th ascent of El Capitan’s iconic Nose route on September 10th. As this Men’s Journal article notes: “Florine plans to write a book about his 25-year relationship with The Nose, tentatively titled On The Nose: A Lifelong Obsession with Yosemite's Most Iconic Big Wall Climb, which will be published by Falcon in August 2016.” Speed Climbing! How To Climb Faster and Better was published by Falcon Guides in 2004.

In her new book, Sex and the Office: Women, Men and the Sex Partition That’s Dividing the Workplace, Kim Elsesser, PhD explores the well-intentioned corporate practices -- often designed to prevent harassment -- that have the unintentional consequence of holding women back at work by making it difficult for them to find mentors among senior managers, many of whom are men. One of her goals in writing the book was to get people talking about the issue, and it’s working. She’s been featured in Cosmopolitan and is in the current issues of SELF, ELLE and Human Resources Executive magazine in the run-up to the book’s Sept. 1 release.
