TNB: The Only Blasphemy
John Bachar laces up his boots and cinches the sling on his chalk bag. “Ready?” Only then do I realize he means to climb all two thousand feet solo, without a rope. To save face, I agree, thinking: Well, if he suggests something too crazy, I’ll just draw the line. I was the first to start soloing out at Josh anyhow.
Backwoods Bouldering
Rooting around for precious gems in the deep & dirty south.
Spotlight: The Double Life of Chris Webb Parsons
Chris Webb Parsons, 29, has a sense of humor to go with his bold and scrappy nature. In his hometown of Canberra, Australia, he held the highest school suspension rate for offenses ranging from dropping his pants to squirting the principal with a fire extinguisher. His sophomore year, Chris was expelled for setting off two chlorine bombs at Canberra High.
TNB: Chris Sharma and The Art of Jeep Maintenance
The scorched desert expanse surrounding Las Vegas smears together into one terrible brown color as Chris Sharma, Dalia Ojeda, Miguel and I whiz along at 90 miles per hour in an old Jeep Grand Cherokee. The American West, this celebrated frontier, as tame as it has become with commercialism and super highways, is still the last good place I know of for real adventure.
Scarpa Booster S
Most companies make zero to three shoes that I actually want to wear for gym, bouldering, and sport climbing. Scarpa has five and counting (look for the super-soft Furia next spring). The variety is great, but can pose a conundrum. Which Scarpa shoe should you buy? I’ll try to answer that question—and review the Booster S—here.
