In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Climbing, July 2007EDITORIAL
The rebirth of cool: remember your first time?

LETTERS

HOT FLASHES
Women that rock, and rock… and rock some more, from V10, to 5.14, to 5.13 onsights; an obsessed Slovenian tops the Alps’ 82 high points in 104 long, wintry days (but doesn’t hallucinate); and Dean Potter gets retro-chic on Hong Kong Phooey — Indian Creek’s hardest — and goes wayyy highball in Yosemite.


FEATURES

Free Blast
The south face of the Marmolada, the highest point in the Italian Dolomites, is one of the most impressive rock walls in the Alps. Although it towers 3,000 feet and stretches more than a mile, this proving ground for Messner, Maestri, and Mariacher remains a cipher to most.
By Jeff Achey

More Gunky Than Funky
We’ve all heard the standard Shawangunks refrain — ”How can 5.9 be so damned overhanging?!” — but you rarely get to see it. Here, the photographer Jim Thornburg takes you up the dizzying moderate heights of this East Coast quartzite paradise in a photo essay that redefines  “5.9.”
Story and photos by Jim Thornburg, Sidebar by Nicky Dyal

Gallery
The oil paintings of Steve Dieckhoff; Sharma in the West; shots from the sharp end; the marriage of climber to rock at Lover’s Leap, California; and Swiss multi-pitch paradise.
