John Long: Slaying Giants
Cast by chance into the frenzy of a dramatic Yosemite rescue, the author confronts his youthful fears head-on.

The Verdon Gorge is technical, spicy and run out, so why is this forgotten climbing style now becoming so popular?
Climbers We Lost In 2012
Jack Roberts died January 15 on Bridalveil Falls, the 400-foot Grade 5 ice climb outside Telluride, Colorado, a route he had done countless times. Says his wife, Pamela Ranger Roberts, "When they finally reached me in Cuba, over 24 hours later, and told me, I truly did not believe it. My first thought was, 'He can't be dead, he's in Telluride. NO WAY he could die in Telluride!'”
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.

Thirty years ago Cascade Designs revolutionized sleeping outside with their Therm-a-Rest air/foam pads. Now they've done it again with an air mattress. Everyone knows that an air mattress is comfortable, but allows convective heat loss, making them just about worthless in cold temperatures.
