TNB: The Only Blasphemy
John Bachar laces up his boots and cinches the sling on his chalk bag. “Ready?” Only then do I realize he means to climb all two thousand feet solo, without a rope. To save face, I agree, thinking: Well, if he suggests something too crazy, I’ll just draw the line. I was the first to start soloing out at Josh anyhow.
Tower of the Damned, Climbing the Crystal Tower
Jeff Jackson and Jose Miranda overcome ghosts, storm and altitude to make the first ascent of Colorado's Crystal Tower.
Mad Max
WHEN MAXIME TURGEON AND LOUIS-PHILIPPE MŠNARD stepped onto the Ruth Glacier in the spring of 2005, no one in the climbing community had ever heard of them.
A Sport for All Ages
At this the most lovely old man got up at the furthest and humblest end of the hall, as he had got up on all similar occasions for the past half-century.
CiloGear W/NW Dyneema 60 WorkSack Review
When I heard of a pack so tough that the maker called it an "heirloom pack, something you can hand down to your grandkids," I was intrigued. Then, when I learned that the pack weighed 40 ounces with a lid, hip belt and "frame," I was hooked and had to take it to the mountains. The pack is a CiloGear W/NW 60L WorkSack (woven Dyneema outer, non-woven Dyneema inner) and the frame is light as air … well almost.
