"Desert Towers is about the desert towers of the Colorado Plateau, those crazy, skinny, very temporary rock formations that stand like lost soldiers, upright and defiant." Those are the words of author Steve "Crusher" Bartlett, who over the past 25 years has summited more than 30 of these previously unclimbed towers during his adventures. At 7 tonight, he'll present a free slideshow and book signing at Mountain Chalet (226 N. Tejon St., deserttowersbook.com), sharing tales of "loose rock, dangerously runout climbing, terrible anchors" and much more. Early holiday gift shoppers: The 350-page work features first-ascent photos and essays by regarded desert climbers. Matthew Schniper
