    The Stonemasters Climb at Pirates Cove
    John Long relives the adventures of the Stonemasters when they first began rock climbing at Pirates Cove at Newport Beach, California.
    Defying the Red Rock Bolt Ban
    Long, airy moderates like Prince of Darkness (5.10c), Epinephrine (5.9) and Crimson Chrysalis (5.8) made Red Rock Canyon famous. But what most climbers don't know about this 196,000-acre national conservation area just outside of Las Vegas is how much more potential it has -- and yet, more unfortunately, how much potential there is to lose.
    Charles Houston, 96
    One of the great privileges of my life was hearing Dr. Charles Houston recount the greatest mountaineering story ever told.

    In 1953 he and seven companions, Art Gilkey, Bob Craig, George Bell, Dee Molenaar, Tony Streather, Bob Bates and Pete Schoening, set off up the then unclimbed peak K2 (28,253).
    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.
    Clif Hot Shot Recovery Drinks: Hot Chocolate
    Hot damn, a recovery drink for the cold-weather athlete! I like the sound of that and the taste of it, too. I've experimented with various supplements to help me stay fit and climb all the time.
