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

Mountain Profile: Ben Nevis
Long approaches, short climbs, rain, spindrift, runouts: maybe the cows aren't the only things mad in Britain. Simon Richardson delves into a century of delightful insanity on the Ben, while Robin Shaw, Ken Crocket, Chris Cartwright, Victor Saunders and Ian Parnell explicate the perverse pleasure of full conditions on Scotland's highest peak.

WIRED

Escape Route
Squamish's Freeway is as clean as a white T-shirt in a Tide commercial and boasts a dozen pitches of first- and second-knuckle-swallowing joy. For this Canadian climber, it is, hands down, the best route in the world.
by Sonnie Trotter


First Ascent
The great Fritz Wiessner himself told Jim McCarthy not to do it. So what did the young climber do? What any budding vulgarian would: he ignored the advice, climbed Wiessner's Crack--and then put up his own route on the untouched west face of Devils Tower.
by Alex McAfee and Jim McCarthy


Full Value
A fractured femur, a dislocated hip, a head injury, eight days of constant avalanches, getting dragged out of the Ruth Gorge in a sleeping bag: it's enough to give anyone pause.
by Jim Sweeney


Off Belay
A journey into the heart of Alpine winter.
