    John Long: A Man for All Seasons
    The myth of Oliver Moon changed the face of Yosemite climbing forever.
    Climbing Dark Star, a Sierra Classic
    There's nothing wrong with spending a summer in Vancouver when Squamish is your backyard, I just wanted more this year. Then the phone rang.

    "Come to California," Trev said. "We'll climb some real mountains. There's a couple of Grade Vs I want to get on."
    Thomas Bubendorfer: Eiger Legend Back in the Game
    The legendary Eiger speed-climber Thomas Bubendorfer, 50, who blew everyone's collective mind in 1983 when he speed soloed the Eiger North Face in an astonishing 4:50, has been active again establishing hard new routes in the Northern Salzgurg Alps of Austria.
    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.
    Brooks-Range Ultralite Solo Tarp
    I recently climbed the Mountaineer's Route on Mount Whitney and slept on the summit with a 6-ounce Solo Tarp to protect me from hail and rain. No typo, that's six ounces, buddy!
