John Long: A Man for All Seasons
The myth of Oliver Moon changed the face of Yosemite climbing forever.
El Cap's Hardest: Wings of Steel
The first ascent of the Great Slab on El Cap sparked climbing’s biggest character assassination, a fit that began with chopped ropes and now, nearly 30 years later continues with online vitriol that is piled nearly as high as the Big
Stone itself. With the second ascent of the wall completed just this summer after countless days and some 500 feet of falls, redemption for the FA team may finally be at hand.
A Tour of Magic and Mystery
In October, Doug Robinson, 61, perhaps the only pioneer from Yosemite's Golden Age who remains active, established, with Michael Thomas, 39, a 20-pitch alpine rock route on the southwest face of Mount Whitney (14,497 feet) in California's Sierra Nevada.
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.
Black Diamond Viper Ice Tool Review
It's easy in this new world order of knobby-handled, leashless mixed tools to lose sight of reality. While we all might fantasize about sending M11 or kicking that little (OK, he's big) Russian's behind in the Ouray mixed finals, the cold hard fact is that we need tools that will actually climb ice, and usually need leashes.
