John Long: On the Road
And you thought your last climbing trip was tough.
JAWS II
It took 35 days, or maybe more. “I stopped counting after I knew it was going to take me a while just to do the moves,” says Vasiliy “Vasya” Vorotnikov of his efforts on the Rumney, New Hampshire, route he calls Jaws II (5.15a).
TNB: Tony Scott, Climber, Movie Maker, Lived and Died Large
It is not every day that someone’s “person” contacts me, and when a voice on the phone asked if I could take a call from Tony Scott, I at first did not know who he was. A director, she said. His films included Top Gun, The Crimson Tide and others. “He’s pretty famous,” she added, and trust me that she was being helpful and not snide.
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.
