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.
Border Country
The ring of a hammer hitting a drill bit bounced down Gunsight Gully in Yosemite. Mad Dog's mullet flapped in the breeze as he swore about having to sink another bristler. Balanced at a small stance with the help of two hooks, Mad Dog (née Dana Drummond) wailed on the drill.
Mayan Smith-Gobat: Climber for all Seasons
Mayan Smith-Gobat, 30, born of a New Zealand mountain-guide father and a German mother (also an alpine climber), is a most impressive all-arounder.
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.
Edelweiss Laser 9.6 Climbing Rope Review
This hardcore rope from Edelweiss is light and right for sporty sends and long onsights. As a bonus, it comes in a red, green and yellow rattlesnake pattern.
