    John Long: A Man for All Seasons
    The myth of Oliver Moon changed the face of Yosemite climbing forever.
    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.
    Charles Houston, 96
    One of the great privileges of my life was hearing Dr. Charles Houston recount the greatest mountaineering story ever told.

    In 1953 he and seven companions, Art Gilkey, Bob Craig, George Bell, Dee Molenaar, Tony Streather, Bob Bates and Pete Schoening, set off up the then unclimbed peak K2 (28,253).
    Alex and Thomas Huber Climb in Queen Maud Land
    Stephon Siegrist and the Huber Brothers-three of Europe's top free climbers-embark on an Antarctic expedition to the spellbinding realm of the Queen Mound Land, and open the coldest chapter of their lives.
