John Long: Mountains of Trouble
The cement-bucket drop test, swami belts and the beginning of the end of a fabled climbing club.
Origin of Species: Fontainebleau
A leading American tours the birthplace of bouldering, Fontainebleau, France, and reports on how for a hundred years “Font” has been the stage for the most difficult moves on rock.
Kurt Albert: The Climber Who Invented Redpointing
Kurt Albert invented the redpoint and developed much of our attitude about modern free climbing. Here, in a 1993 interview where he talks about free climbing's origins and questionable tactics such as chipping.
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.
Scarpa Booster S
Most companies make zero to three shoes that I actually want to wear for gym, bouldering, and sport climbing. Scarpa has five and counting (look for the super-soft Furia next spring). The variety is great, but can pose a conundrum. Which Scarpa shoe should you buy? I’ll try to answer that question—and review the Booster S—here.
