    Features

    John Long: Legend of Lord Gym
    Sammy and I hunkered into the shade beneath the Weeping Wall, Suicide Rock, panting between pulls on a gallon jug of water. The sun had just crawled over Tahquitz Rock, a mile across the Sunshine Valley, and heat waves welled off the Suicide slabs. No big.
    Storming Castles: New Routing in the High Sierras
    My home in Colorado is day-tripping distance from the Diamond, but every summer for the last few years I have forsaken the Rockies to answer the siren call of California’s High Sierra.
    Alex Puccio
    The first time Alex Puccio tried to join her climbing team, she didn't get far. Alex, now 17, from McKinney, Texas, had just started climbing at the Exposure gym.
    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.
    Black Diamond Nforce Ascender
    Black Diamond's new NForce ascender utilizes a unique four-bar linkage system that allows the handle to track up and down. This action pivots the cam and generates more clamping force when you weight the ascender. The result is a tool that grips icy and muddy ropes better than conventional jugs.
