Climb Safe

Features

TNB: The Only Blasphemy
John Bachar laces up his boots and cinches the sling on his chalk bag. “Ready?” Only then do I realize he means to climb all two thousand feet solo, without a rope. To save face, I agree, thinking: Well, if he suggests something too crazy, I’ll just draw the line. I was the first to start soloing out at Josh anyhow.
Armenia Rock Climbing
Six-sided columns ran up basalt ramparts like a stack of Grecian pillars. A dike of perfect gold stairs split a strange, 300-foot tower of gray choss. Snowy mountains with slopes of varicolored grasses fell precipitously to orchards, sedge and clear rivers. Gorges of volcanic rock were cloaked in fog.
Home Girl
Crystal Davis-Robbins was jumaring the first gully on Cerro Domo Blanco, in Patagonia, when a rock the size of a softball careened down.
Alex and Thomas Huber Climb in Queen Maud Land
Stephon Siegrist and the Huber Brothers-three of Europe's top free climbers-embark on an Antarctic expedition to the spellbinding realm of the Queen Mound Land, and open the coldest chapter of their lives.
Nicros Warrior Hangboard Review
This is a compact (10-by-25-inch) board with a “ribcage” that projects two lateral arms, the ends of which terminate in biscuit-like jugs that, according to one tester, simulated a very natural hand position, and four-finger pinch grips (or slopers if you bag the thumbs).
