John Long: Legends of the Mind
Calling Buhl on the famous mountaineer’s truisms
EVEREST 2008
Climbers on the world's highest mountain have been particularly challenged this season -- not by altitude, weather or even the stream of guided climbers who clog the camps and flanks of Everest like cholesterol in the artery to the summit. This season the crux could be getting past the cops now posted around the base and at Camp II (21,300 feet) on the Nepal side.
Italian Legend: Lino lacedelli | 83
Even at 83, Lino Lacedelli looked as if he were supplying all of Cortina with firewood. Thousands of spliced logs lined his shed, and a visitor might find him wielding an axe, chopping more.
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.
Climbtech RB Anchor and Perma Draw
This year, Climb Tech is offering a redesigned removable bolt (RB) that works better and is far easier to clean than the original model. The RB, basically a ball nut engineered to fit a drilled hole, has been around for 11 years and has been employed extensively by climbers all over the world, mainly as a way to aid steep walls and roofs that lack features to hook.
