Climb Safe


John Long: Mountains of Trouble
The cement-bucket drop test, swami belts and the beginning of the end of a fabled climbing club.
Jah Man (5.10) Sister Superior
The mighty Jah Man checks in at a legit 5.10c. It’s not some super-hyper-sandbagged mid-range 5.11 masquerading as a 5.10+. Jah Man tackles Sister Superior’s sheer West Face via 250 steep feet of Wingate sweetness with exposed climbing, plus great gear and perfect belay ledges.
Freedom Path
At the moment Madaleine Sorkin found herself clipping into a sketchy dead man's triangle -- a piece of webbing tied, without being equalized, through two pitons -- she considered yarding her way back up to the last rappel anchors. But she just wanted off.
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.
Black Diamond Apollo Lantern
Light is symbolic of everything good in our world, not to mention that it's useful. We pragmatic, weight-conscious, nit picky, gear-snobby climbers now have two new pocket lights to help us get through the darkest moments of our pointless existences: the Black Diamond Apollo Lantern. and the Coleman Exponent Lithium Pack-Away Lantern.
