John Long: High Times

Tahoe Moderates
I was gambling: two kings face down in front of me, and a third in the middle of the table, along with two spades and half my chips. I shoved my remaining $150 into the middle. Of course my opponent called and turned over two more spades. Climbing photographers aren’t the highest-paid people in the world, so a $540 pot was plenty to fire my adrenal glands into hyperdrive.
Nik Berry: Obsessive Crusher
An unassuming 24-year-old from Sandy, Utah, Nik Berry redpointed the 5.13d “ledge-to-ledge” version of the Salathé Wall (VI 5.13d) on El Capitan.
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.
Five Ten Anasazi Lace-Up Shoe Reveiw
★★★½ The Pink is a reincarnation of Five Ten’s Anasazi Lace-Up, one of the most innovative and iconic rock shoes ever. The Lace-Up had its heyday in the early to mid-1990s when it quickly became the go-to shoe for standard-setting climbers in America and Europe (who weren’t sponsored by other shoe companies).
