    John Long: It Started with a Pile of Stones
    Chasing ghosts on Hawaiian sea cliffs.
    Destination Sinks Canyon Wyoming
    On the day of the Summer Solstice, it was windy, dry and cool at Sinks Canyon, just outside Lander, Wyoming. A small band of climbers were enjoying perfect conditions at the area's choicest wall, the Killer Cave.
    Q&A: V15 Maestro Nacho Sanchez Unleashed
    Nacho Sanchez goes against the grain. Hailing from Spain, best known for its sport climbing, Sanchez prefers his country’s boulders to its in-vogue sport crags. He is not only leading the charge to explore the overlooked blocks of Spain, but he is also pioneering his country’s first and only V15s.
    An Encounter with Fred
    Joe Josephson phoned with an interesting proposal: Fred Beckey had come to town for a reunion of Montana's Dirty Sox Club, a guild of Montana climbers from the 1960s through the 1980s.

    If anyone has earned an honorary membership in a group named Dirty Sox it is Washington's Fred Beckey, sovereign of American DirtBag Climbers.
    C.A.M.P. Magic Anorak
    I like nothing more than a sweet nothing. Therefore, I like the Magic Anorak. Tipping the scales at just over three ounces (the weight of a locking carabiner), the Magic is a serious contender for the title World's Lightest Shell.
