As far back as I could remember I’d wondered which of mankind’s faiths and illusions I could choose as my sustaining light, and I’d chosen the greatest existential pathology of them all: that if I worked hard enough, and smartly enough, my greatest challenges would someday flow effortlessly under my hands like glassy Malibu swells.
The Stonemasters Climb at Pirates Cove
John Long relives the adventures of the Stonemasters when they first began rock climbing at Pirates Cove at Newport Beach, California.
Extreme Eleven and Beyond
Dave MacLeod, 29, of Fort William, Scotland, is the top contender for the title of world's best all-around climber -- not just because he has a fat tick list of top-end grades, but because he has also established first ascents at this high-end level.
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.
Julbo Run Sunglasses
THE JULBO RUN, with its NXT lenses, are amazingly clear and literally bullet proof. Does that make them a perfect match for climbers?
