Climb Safe

Features

John Long: A Confederacy of Dunces
Navigating Commercial Hoopla On A Bellyful Of Bad Fish
Island of Opportunity: Exploring the Potential of Puerto Rico
Jorge Colon took numerous wrong turns but eventually we arrived at the largest slaughterhouse on the island of Puerto Rico. Jorge, a local climber and a dog lover who runs a kennel, had come here so he could purchase an industrial-sized bone cutter and a large bag of bovine tripe to be used for dog food.
Francesca Metcalf: Meant to Compete
Francesca Metcalf sits on her bedroom floor for over an hour, fixated, clicking and forming the top layer of a Rubik’s Cube. A few days later she wakes up and finds the Rubik’s Cube in her bed. “It’s a little sad,” the Boston-area climber, who turned 18 in March, says, “how much time I’ve put into it.”
Altered State
A tricky crux, a surprise pop, a very fast 15-foot descent. I was delighted to find myself dangling from my beloved little blue Metolius. But when doing a quick body inventory, I noted that my left foot was attempting an inward 180. Suddenly, explosively, it hurt like hell. My partner Peter quickly lowered me, winced, and suggested we call an ambulance.
La Sportiva Speedster
If you dipped your barefeet into a bucket of liquid rubber (yes, this has been tried) then went climbing you’d get roughly the same sensation as you would wearing La Sportiva’s new slipper the Speedster—the softest shoe I’ve ever worn and one of the very few that you can actually bend with your foot.
