John Long: A Man for All Seasons
The myth of Oliver Moon changed the face of Yosemite climbing forever.
Climbing Dark Star, a Sierra Classic
There's nothing wrong with spending a summer in Vancouver when Squamish is your backyard, I just wanted more this year. Then the phone rang.

"Come to California," Trev said. "We'll climb some real mountains. There's a couple of Grade Vs I want to get on."
Chris Boskoff
In the sport of high-altitude mountaineering, Chris Boskoff earned her stripes by simply shutting up and climbing.

On December 4, 2006, Boskoff, 39, and Charlie Fowler, 52, failed to return on their flight to the United States from China.
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 Reactor Ice Tool
Clean, simple, elegant - a couple of years ago, I would never have used those words to describe a leashless ice tool with an offset grip. But that was before I held a set of the new Black Diamond Reactors in my mitts. While the security of leashes (the futzy bastards) will always occupy a fond place in my heart, leashless climbing is here to stay.
