    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.
    Red Dihedral (IV 5.10b)
    Some routes or formations you climb for a physical challenge, and some because they are beautiful, but some things you climb because they explode out of the ground like granite rockets promising to take you to the moon. That’s the initial allure of the Incredible Hulk (11,040 feet) on the east side of the California Sierras.
    An Advanced Beginner
    Sam Elias has lit up the probable third ascent of Red Bull (M11), Vail, Colorado, after only mixed climbing for roughly one season, and only climbing three years total.
    An Encounter with Fred
    Joe Josephson phoned with an interesting proposal: Fred Beckey had come to town for a reunion of Montana's Dirty Sox Club, a guild of Montana climbers from the 1960s through the 1980s.

    If anyone has earned an honorary membership in a group named Dirty Sox it is Washington's Fred Beckey, sovereign of American DirtBag Climbers.
    Montrail Smoothy Shoe Review
    With a dove-gray synthetic upper and translucent gel-like flashing, the Smoothy is an eye-catching shoe.
