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.
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."
John Rosholt: Climber and Gambler Disappears in Las Vegas
John Rosholt, longtime climber and professional gambler disappeared in Las Vegas in 2005. What happened?
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.
Arc'teryx Pali Rope Bag
Leave it to the innovators at Arc'teryx to take a mundane item like a rope bag and turn it into something new and snazzy. The Pali features the standard polyurethane-coated ground sheet that keeps your rope out of the dirt, but departs from the norm by utilizing a roll-top closure.
