Climb Safe

Features

John Long: A Man for All Seasons
The myth of Oliver Moon changed the face of Yosemite climbing forever.
Red Dihedral (IV 5.10b)
Some routes or formations you climb for a physical challenge, and some because they are beautiful, but some things you climb because they explode out of the ground like granite rockets promising to take you to the moon. That’s the initial allure of the Incredible Hulk (11,040 feet) on the east side of the California Sierras.
Charles Houston, 96
One of the great privileges of my life was hearing Dr. Charles Houston recount the greatest mountaineering story ever told.

In 1953 he and seven companions, Art Gilkey, Bob Craig, George Bell, Dee Molenaar, Tony Streather, Bob Bates and Pete Schoening, set off up the then unclimbed peak K2 (28,253).
Altered State
A tricky crux, a surprise pop, a very fast 15-foot descent. I was delighted to find myself dangling from my beloved little blue Metolius. But when doing a quick body inventory, I noted that my left foot was attempting an inward 180. Suddenly, explosively, it hurt like hell. My partner Peter quickly lowered me, winced, and suggested we call an ambulance.
CaVa Forza Shoe Review
Climbing in the Forza was like meeting an old friend. With its lilac-navy colors and soft, supple leather upper, this shoe resembles Boreal's sadly discontinued Vector.
