DPM‘s Mikey Williams, writing about the passing of Dave Pegg:
Dave founded Wolverine Publishing in the early 2000s and quickly changed the landscape of climbing guidebooks forever. His first major publication was a collaborative effort with author Ray Ellington on a guidebook to the Red River Gorge. It had all the elements we now expect from a quality guide: full color action shots, essays written by prominent locals, digital images of the cliff face with the topo lines drawn in, and thorough, entertaining route descriptions. Over the last decade, Wolverine Publishing seized the reins as the leader in quality guidebooks releasing dozens of books to America’s most popular climbing areas like Smith Rock, Rifle, Maple Canyon, Bishop, Hueco, and the New River Gorge.
