    John Long: Legend of Lord Gym
    Sammy and I hunkered into the shade beneath the Weeping Wall, Suicide Rock, panting between pulls on a gallon jug of water. The sun had just crawled over Tahquitz Rock, a mile across the Sunshine Valley, and heat waves welled off the Suicide slabs. No big.
    Climbing Beta: El Potrero Chico, Mexico
    Moja Gear takes us south of the border to El Potrero Chico's limestone bastions.
    Reinhold Messner: What I've Learned
    Reinhold Messner was the first to climb Everest without oxygen. He has established upwards of 500 rock routes, made extreme desert crossings, polar expeditions and has written over 50 books. This is his ecstatic wisdom of a life spent on the edge.
    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.
    Black Diamond Butler Pad Review
    The Butler is an inch-thick pad that zips up like a gun case. Store all your gear in it for a day of sport climbing or bouldering, and wear it as a pack, or stuff it inside a full-sized crash pad.
