    John Long: The Royal Scam
    Coming clean on the mysterious first ascent of a Yosemite classic.
    El Cajon Climbing Crag Bolts Chopped
    San Diego's premier crag, El Cajon, has been targeted by an individual bent on removing or destroying fixed anchors and bolts. According to local Chris Hubbard, who co-authored the San Diego County Climbing Guide with Dave Kennedy, the vandal has chopped 16 100-foot sport pitches at El Cajon and several routes at Mission Gorge.
    Offwidth Hombre

    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.
    La Sportiva Miura VS Shoe Review
    Though the Miura VS is most definitely “high performance,” it actually is an all-around tool that would improve every climber’s performance, no matter what discipline they are into. Really, this slipper just works well in all climbing applications. Who wouldn’t want that?
