Climb Safe

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.
Pure Magic: Spellbound By the Boulders of Switzerland
The mossy green forest of Magic Woods radiates upward out of the steep valley until it meets the sharp, snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps. The contrast is sublime.
Crack Attack
Pamela Pack picked up the fringe pursuit of offwidth bouldering this summer. This Boulder, Colorado, climber has since rapidly dispensed with numerous Vedauwoo, Wyoming, bouldering testpieces including The Warden (extended start, 5.13a), Desiderata (5.12b), University of Mars (5.12b), Life Without Parole (5.12a), Banana Hammock (5.12a) and Hobgoblin (5.12a)
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.
Petzl Hirundos Climbing Harness Review
Two outstanding attributes to the Hirundos are the Frame Construction Technology on the swami belt and the DoubleBack buckles, which can be found on the Petzl Sama, Adjama, Luna, Selena and now, the light and sporty Hirundos.
