    John Long: A Confederacy of Dunces
    Navigating Commercial Hoopla On A Bellyful Of Bad Fish
    Defying the Red Rock Bolt Ban
    Long, airy moderates like Prince of Darkness (5.10c), Epinephrine (5.9) and Crimson Chrysalis (5.8) made Red Rock Canyon famous. But what most climbers don't know about this 196,000-acre national conservation area just outside of Las Vegas is how much more potential it has -- and yet, more unfortunately, how much potential there is to lose.
    Crag Clown
    It's fall, but the Red River Gorge is so humid we're all looking for a break from the heat. The lights are finally set for a portrait I'm taking of a big name, 5.14-sending sponsored athlete, when over walks Nelson Carayannis, a climber of considerably less talent and strength. Carayannis, casually gripping a Gatorade bottle, asks if I'm ready.
    Charlie Fowler American Alpinist
    That Charlie Fowler would meet his end while doing what he loved is no huge surprise given the sheer volume of his climbing. At age 52, he'd racked up three and a half decades of it, and had carried his quiet air of a seasoned survivor from hard rock to the high-risk games of alpine climbing and soloing.
    Edelrid Live Wire HyperDry
    Have faith! There are ropes that do not kink, are extremely supple, light (62 grams per meter) and resilient. Such are the qualities of the Live Wire 9.8mm, a super cord from the German company Edelrid, one of the oldest climbing rope manufacturers in the world.
