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.

Superwuss (5.10), Black Canyon
“If I ever did a first ascent,” my friend Brandi said, “I would call it Super Wuss.” After belaying Brandi for nearly an hour as she hung, battled and grunted up the red 5.6 at the Boulder Rock Club, I could see that she was probably not destined for new routing. But the name made me laugh, and I thought it deserved a home on a future first ascent.
The Locomotive: Roy McMurtrey – 87 and Still Climbing
Roy McMurtrey was born in the north woods of Idaho on October 18, 1928. He started climbing mountains in 1972 and summited Mount St. Helens at 9,677 feet—before it erupted. Roy is now 87 years old and he’s still going strong. This is Roy McMurtrey’s Story.
