Jah Man (5.10) Sister Superior
The mighty Jah Man checks in at a legit 5.10c. It’s not some super-hyper-sandbagged mid-range 5.11 masquerading as a 5.10+. Jah Man tackles Sister Superior’s sheer West Face via 250 steep feet of Wingate sweetness with exposed climbing, plus great gear and perfect belay ledges.
John Bachar's Last Interview
In the mid-1970s, John Bachar set out to become a legend. Soloing harder and harder routes, Bachar quickly outpaced the rest of the world only to find himself isolated by his staunch belief in the traditional ethic. Now, at 50, Bachar has come to uneasy terms with sport climbing. Or has he?
Altered State
A tricky crux, a surprise pop, a very fast 15-foot descent. I was delighted to find myself dangling from my beloved little blue Metolius. But when doing a quick body inventory, I noted that my left foot was attempting an inward 180. Suddenly, explosively, it hurt like hell. My partner Peter quickly lowered me, winced, and suggested we call an ambulance.
Camelbak Better Bottle and Nalgene Everyday BPA-Free bottles
Earlier this year, a rash of studies suggested that the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) mimics estrogen, the primary female sex hormone. Scientists speculated that BPA could be causing problems like breast enlargement and reduced sperm counts in men. Concurrent with the studies, BPA was shown to leach from plastic water bottles, the kind most of us climbers use.
