Epic Climbing Stories


Climb Safe

Features

John Long: Mountains of Trouble
The cement-bucket drop test, swami belts and the beginning of the end of a fabled climbing club.
Cragging in the Bay Area
I had never kissed a girl, so when a naked one came up to me and started asking questions about the climb I had just tried, I was a little thrown. Painfully shy, I’d always wondered how I would ever ask a girl to go climbing, and now a naked one was here asking me if I knew of a place where she could learn.
Alex Johnson - The Pro Life and Growing Up as a Climber
Alex Johnson bought a trad rack. She admits that she doesn’t know how to use it yet, but is excited to learn. She's been one of the biggest names in competition bouldering for almost a decade, but now, she’s ready to move on.
Charlie Fowler American Alpinist
That Charlie Fowler would meet his end while doing what he loved is no huge surprise given the sheer volume of his climbing. At age 52, he'd racked up three and a half decades of it, and had carried his quiet air of a seasoned survivor from hard rock to the high-risk games of alpine climbing and soloing.
Big Agnes Women's Hot Sulphur Belay Jacket
Was it an “aha” moment? Or just a duh? For years the manufacturer Big Agnes (named for a peak near Steamboat Springs, Colorado) has been making sleeping bags, its watchword being “comfortable.” One day somebody got the idea to wrap those solid sleeping bags around us as jackets.
