John Long: The Royal Scam
Coming clean on the mysterious first ascent of a Yosemite classic.
El Cap's Hardest: Wings of Steel
The first ascent of the Great Slab on El Cap sparked climbing’s biggest character assassination, a fit that began with chopped ropes and now, nearly 30 years later continues with online vitriol that is piled nearly as high as the Big Stone itself. With the second ascent of the wall completed just this summer after countless days and some 500 feet of falls, redemption for the FA team may finally be at hand.
Jody Hansen
LAST YEAR JODY HANSEN came out of nowhere to tick a trilogy of V11 boulder problems in Rocky Mountain National Park, outside her home in Estes Park, Colorado. She sent the Kind Traverse, Sunspot and Bush Pilot, a long arete that overhangs 40 degrees.
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.

Earlier this year, a rash of studies suggested that the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) mimics estrogen, the primary female sex hormone. Scientists speculated that BPA could be causing problems like breast enlargement and reduced sperm counts in men. Concurrent with the studies, BPA was shown to leach from plastic water bottles, the kind most of us climbers use.
