reel rock legacy

Over the past decade, REEL ROCK has introduced audiences to the leading climbers and defining ascents of our era. From Chris Sharma’s first ascent of Es Pontas in Lines (RR 2) and Alex Honnold’s free solos of Moonlight Buttress Alone on the Wall (RR 4) to Ueli Steck’s speed ascent of the Eiger North Face in Machine (RR 5), REEL ROCK tells the definitive stories of the vertical realm. Titles like Ascent, The Sharp End, Progression, Cold, Sketchy Andy, The Shark’s Fin, Obe & Ashima, Honnold 3.0, and Valley Uprising constitute a worthy library for any climber or film buff .

get traditional

I was 16 the first time I went climbing. A family friend took me to West Virginia’s Seneca Rocks, and we camped and climbed trad for two days, although I didn’t know I was climbing trad. I just thought I was climbing— that multiple pitches and tons of gear and being self-sufficient was what it meant to go climbing. You pick a ludicrous and unnecessary destination, figure out how to get there, battle fear and fatigue and rope drag, and high-five at the top. Then obsess about doing it all again. I was instantly hooked. Growing up in small-town Ohio, a high schooler’s social worth is often equal to whatever those letters on a letter jacket mean. Since I didn’t have one of those, climbing became my way to have fun,…

[Kevin Corrigan] Our digital media specialist discovered climbing when Brooklyn Boulders opened their first location in NYC, where he was working as a comedy writer. Since then, the sport has taken over his life. What he lacks in finger strength, talent, and general fitness, he makes up for in fun. Enjoy his work on pages 22 and 80. [Craig DeMartino] After losing part of his leg in an accident 13 years ago, Craig retooled his life to focus squarely on family, friends, and climbing. “I climb a mix of everything, which keeps climbing fresh and as fun as the first day I tied in.” When he’s not climbing, he counsels trauma survivors on navigating their “new normal.” His own involved learning better balance. His experience-driven advice is on page 51. [Blake Herrington] Blake is a…

virtual discussion

Competition climbing has made the short list of events that could be added to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. The news sparked a swarm of comments on our Facebook page. Some would be psyched to see climbers achieve Olympic glory; others think it’s another step toward commercializing what should be a personal endeavor. Read the story at climbing.com/2020Olympics and join in on this and future discussions at facebook.com/climbingmagazine. I don’t think it should be an Olympic sport. Why reduce it to just another damn competitive game like something you play with a ball? —Mike Renz 6/22/15 3:39 p.m. If climbing doesn’t make it, I won’t be devastated, but if it loses out to bowling to become an Olympic sport, I will lose faith in humanity. —Patrick Radecker 6/22/15 3:42 p.m. Maybe it would help clear…
