TNB: The Only Blasphemy
John Bachar laces up his boots and cinches the sling on his chalk bag. “Ready?” Only then do I realize he means to climb all two thousand feet solo, without a rope. To save face, I agree, thinking: Well, if he suggests something too crazy, I’ll just draw the line. I was the first to start soloing out at Josh anyhow.
Good Ice Hunting
Who says global warming is putting the kibosh on ice climbing? Certainly not a small but active crew of climbers in Virginia.
Ammon McKneely
Nobody dominates El Cap's hard, scary lines like Ammon McNeely. He has close to 30 speed ascents on El Cap and the big walls of Zion National Park, Utah, many of them in-a-day records that won't be beaten for a long time.
TNB: Chris Sharma and The Art of Jeep Maintenance
The scorched desert expanse surrounding Las Vegas smears together into one terrible brown color as Chris Sharma, Dalia Ojeda, Miguel and I whiz along at 90 miles per hour in an old Jeep Grand Cherokee. The American West, this celebrated frontier, as tame as it has become with commercialism and super highways, is still the last good place I know of for real adventure.
Lowa Ice Comp IP GTX
Sporting an, over the ankle upper, the Lowa Ice Comp, which came out in 2005, is the most boot-like of the fruitboots I have tested. It’s practical, warm enough for winter days in Colorado (that is down to about 20 F) and is the model that Ines Papert rages in, which says enough right there.
