John Long: Mountains of Trouble
The cement-bucket drop test, swami belts and the beginning of the end of a fabled climbing club.
El Cajon Climbing Crag Bolts Chopped
San Diego's premier crag, El Cajon, has been targeted by an individual bent on removing or destroying fixed anchors and bolts. According to local Chris Hubbard, who co-authored the San Diego County Climbing Guide with Dave Kennedy, the vandal has chopped 16 100-foot sport pitches at El Cajon and several routes at Mission Gorge.
Chris Boskoff
In the sport of high-altitude mountaineering, Chris Boskoff earned her stripes by simply shutting up and climbing.

On December 4, 2006, Boskoff, 39, and Charlie Fowler, 52, failed to return on their flight to the United States from China.
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.
CAMP Armour
The lightweight Camp Armour helmet is affordable, functional and impeccably stylish. Weighing in at 11 ounces, this helmet doesn't make me look or feel like a top-heavy gumby, but it offers enough protection to make me feel safe while plundering choss in the Mexican outback.
