John Long Tales

Features

John Long: A Man for All Seasons
The myth of Oliver Moon changed the face of Yosemite climbing forever.
Devil's Advocate
In a place defined by vertical geometry, I am the lone exception.

As a climber of decades, I am no stranger to seemingly insane positions and situations, the kinds of things that predictably and, I admit, satisfyingly cause sightseers to unhinge their jaws.
Climbers We Lost in 2014
They range in age from 24 to 90. Some are names—Sean Leary, Charlie Porter, Eric Bjornstad, Flyin' Brian—many climbers know, while others we wish we knew. They had done so much; or they simply loved our world and sport.
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.
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.
