The Adventures of Hardy Grimper

Kate stood him up, so Hardy's off for a solo of Standing Rock. Angst, desert sandstone, sweltering heat: What more could you want from an adventure.

Hero of the Soviet Union

The former Soviet Union is home to some of the great walls of the world. One alpinist set out to prove himself on the Rocky Ak-Su Peak. Little did he know the mountain would become his home away from home for the next ten years.
