John Long: It Started with a Pile of Stones
Chasing ghosts on Hawaiian sea cliffs.
Creatures of Feature
The thought of a 200-pound cougar lurking somewhere in the old-growth cedars injected a spring into my step as I battled up the steep back-side trail on Squamish Chief. This dome-shaped mountain and its gorgeous granite walls loom over the 100-year-old logging town of Squamish, nestled at the head of an inlet on British Columbia's lush West Coast.
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.
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.
CiloGear W/NW Dyneema 60 WorkSack Review
When I heard of a pack so tough that the maker called it an "heirloom pack, something you can hand down to your grandkids," I was intrigued. Then, when I learned that the pack weighed 40 ounces with a lid, hip belt and "frame," I was hooked and had to take it to the mountains. The pack is a CiloGear W/NW 60L WorkSack (woven Dyneema outer, non-woven Dyneema inner) and the frame is light as air … well almost.
