John Long: The Only Rule That Counts
The greatest riches lie at the end of your dreams

The Beatnik of the Alps: A tale of FA's, Rescues, Love, and Suicide
Gary Hemming—the enigmatic Californian who brought the modern American climbing spirit and technique to the Alps during the 1960s—was a cultural hero in Europe during an era of social upheaval. Yet his fame in Europe—and anonymity in America—sat uneasily with his rebellious nature.

And perhaps in death Hemming became what the living cannot be—a legend and a myth.
