Weekend Whipper: Hooked Through the Ankle
Chad Watkins was almost through the crux of Big Top, a 5.12a gear route in the New River Gorge, West Virginia, when his foot popped. He peeled off the wall, but to his surprise, came to an abrupt stop. He hung upside-down by the meat of his ankle.
GEAR REVIEW: Scarpa Furia
The Furias, as you would expect from Scarpa, are extremely well made. This is one of Scarpa’s top-end shoes, geared for performance on steep terrain. Indeed, I dig them for steep sport climbing, bouldering and even low-angle smearing. They’re sensitive, and that’s OK.
Why Women Should Put up New Routes
I find new-routing to be more satisfying than any other form of climbing because each line is your creation and interpretation of the rock.
Accident: Climber Grabs Draw, Skins Finger
Of all the “don’ts” of climbing, grabbing a quickdraw while you are falling is one of the bigger no-nos, and can result in serious injury, including “de-gloving” a finger.
