Climb Safe

Shattered Glass
BY SARAH GARLICKNORTH CAROLINA'S LOOKING GLASS Rock offers East Coast climbers a rare taste of granite wall climbing. Set in the Pisgah National Fores...
Cowboy Anguish
"Good night, Chuck. We'll shoot the gun and throw the hatchet after coffee tomorrow morning," BJ Tilden speaks these last words as everyone around the campfire nods, and retires to tents and sleeping bags.

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.
Mad Rock Rope Bucket Review
You often don’t realize how badly something sucks until you try something that doesn’t suck. Case in point: rope tarps.
