Climb Safe

Features

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.
Rock Climbing and Bouldering in Mongolia
Mongolia was everything he wanted, until something went wrong. Nathan Smith journeys to Mongolia in seek of first ascents on the crags and boulders there.
Climber Hugh Herr Honored by Esquire Magazine
Who knew that a climber's accident and desire to return to his sport would some day benefit wounded soldiers?

Hugh Herr, once a leading climber, appeared in Esquire's recent theme Genius Issue, credited for being at the forefront of the prosthetics field.
TNB: Chris Sharma and The Art of Jeep Maintenance
The scorched desert expanse surrounding Las Vegas smears together into one terrible brown color as Chris Sharma, Dalia Ojeda, Miguel and I whiz along at 90 miles per hour in an old Jeep Grand Cherokee. The American West, this celebrated frontier, as tame as it has become with commercialism and super highways, is still the last good place I know of for real adventure.
Acopa Merlin
When the magician saws his lovely assistant's body in half, then rejoins her, I don't ask any questions. I just let the magic work, and enjoy. No surprise, then, that I dig Acopa's latest offering, the Merlin.
