Editor's Note

Posted on: August 25, 2002

We believe in sinker jams high off the deck, a bomber nut, the crescent moon, your partner's whoop, sand-washing the fry pan, one-swing sticks, remembering to breathe, alpine starts (more for the alpenglow than the early hour), the plungestep, laughter around the campfire, lenticular cloudcaps, the focus of a runout, a cold beer after a long hard day. If you believe in these things too, join us. It is, after all, the climbing life.
