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.
Pure Magic: Spellbound By the Boulders of Switzerland
The mossy green forest of Magic Woods radiates upward out of the steep valley until it meets the sharp, snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps. The contrast is sublime.
John Bachar's Last Interview
In the mid-1970s, John Bachar set out to become a legend. Soloing harder and harder routes, Bachar quickly outpaced the rest of the world only to find himself isolated by his staunch belief in the traditional ethic. Now, at 50, Bachar has come to uneasy terms with sport climbing. Or has he?
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.
Mammut Liquid Chalk
I liken Mammut’s new Liquid Chalk to the introduction of sticky rubber shoes—it works so well you think you can’t climb without it.
