After spending last month in Baja, @craigasaurus and I will spend most of this month on the slopes in Colorado. When we first rolled in and I felt the 20 degree air I asked, “wait, why did we leave Baja?” Then it started to snow, and pretty much won’t stop for the next two weeks and my question was answered…we left to surf some pow! Craig basically hasn’t skied in 10 years, after learning to ski about the same time he learned to walk he gave it up to pursue a career in track & field and knew he put himself at a high risk for injury if he continued skiing through college. You would think after that long of a break he would take a couple days to get back into it, but the past two days he’s been skiing backwards launching himself into the air over lips and generally flying down everything. ⛷

Ondra open
After climbing my first El Cap route, I stumbled like a zombie back to my campsite Camp 4 at 9 p.m., hoping to just crash into my sleeping bag. Instead of finding my Walmart children’s tent with all my shit, there was a round rock pinning down a pink citation, telling me my campsite was illegal (it wasn’t) and that I had to go to the ranger HQ to pay a fine and retrieve my belongings.
Super bummer.
I spent the next four hours feeling like a criminal, filling out scary papers, having my fingerprints taken (I didn’t have any fingerprints, though, being a rabid rock fiend), and, at every turn, having this jerk-off officer dish out his own brand of verbal justice by reminding me that he was in the position of power and I was not.
In the first week of November, all the climbers left and the snows arrived. Camp 4 was empty and I was one of five people left.
In the last dozen years, all of this has completely changed. Now, by Halloween, all the aid climbers have left, and Camp 4 comes back to life with free climbers who are keen to take their sport-climbing-honed finger strength up onto the Captain.
Tommy Caldwell, after his most recent trip to Yosemite to see Adam Ondra on the Dawn Wall, put it this way: “I walk into Camp 4 now, and I know everybody. It’s really weird!”
Never before have there been as many free climbers on El Capitan all at once as there are this season, the fall of 2016. This year, it seems, marks the dawn of a new era for Yosemite. The old standards and old ideas about difficulty and what’s possible are being replaced by a new generation of gym- and sport-honed climbers who are embracing a new kind of adventure.
“There are probably six or seven different free routes being attempted on El Cap right now,” observed Caldwell a couple of weeks ago. “Several of them are my routes, which haven’t been repeated. I feel like, suddenly, it’s come into its age, or whatever. I spent the last 20 years climbing up there—it was just me, and the Hubers, and a handful of other people, occasionally. But suddenly, it’s like, a thing. It kind of makes me feel a little less crazy because I used to be like, ‘I think this is the coolest thing in climbing. Why isn’t everybody here?’ Now I think it’s starting to catch on.”
The old joke that European sport climbers would come to Yosemite with the cocksure certainty that their 8c-climbing selves would crush the Big Stone, only to find out that they couldn’t even climb 5.11 off-width and they would scamper back home to Europe with their tail tucked between their three-quarter-length manpris just doesn’t work anymore. You can’t make this joke anymore. It’s done. It’s retired.
A predominantly European faction of free climbers have dominated El Capitan this season.

Jorg Verhoeven came away with the second free ascent of the Dihedral Wall (5.14a), perhaps the second most-difficult and sustained free climb on El Capitan after the Dawn Wall.
Barbara Zangerl and Jacobo Larcher achieved the third free ascent of Zodiac (5.13d).

Pete Whittaker made a one-day free ascent of Freerider (5.12d), rope-soloing the route.
Marc-Andre Leclerc and Brette Harrington put in an impressive, near-free effort on El Corazon.
Robbie Philips sent the Pre-Muir (5.13d), his third free route on El Cap this year—the other two being Golden Gate and El Nino, completed this spring.
And, of course, Adam Ondra crushed the Dawn Wall (5.14d) last week for his very first El Cap free climb.
And Freerider has been sent by what seems to be nearly a dozen different climbers this year.
With this much action, reporting free ascents of El Capitan will soon begin to feel about as significant as another adolescent ascent of God’s Own Stone (5.14a) at the Red River Gorge.
“The climbers are almost like celebrities now,” says Caldwell. “It just feels so different now. All the rangers want your autograph. We went trick-or-treating in Ranger Town for Halloween, and they gave us hugs. Normally, I would be terribly afraid I was going to get arrested … but now I feel like I’m going to get invited in for dinner.”
Climbers getting invited into the rangers’ houses for dinner. … What’s next?
Yosemite climbing is moving forward at a breakneck pace. Aid climbers, move over. This is the dawn of a new era—one that’s not going to involve standing in stirrups and using fifi hooks. Look carefully on the side of the road. There’s the carnage of all the old, tired egos, tossed to the side of the freeway like road kill, still clinging to the day when their standards were the height of climbing world and not the new warmups.

Trucking in CanadaA Baby Beluga glamor shot on the empty roads of Yoho National Park in Canada.
The truck choked and its temperature gauge skyrocketed upwards. We pulled over on Canada’s Interstate 97 and popped the hood. A wave of sickly sweet odor flew out, and shiny neon green liquid poured onto the gravel, already wet with the relentless rain. Our home on wheels, dubbed Baby Beluga, was hemorrhaging coolant.
After a few failed attempts to fix the ruptured coolant hose t-fitting, involving duck tape and super glue, we called a tow truck and got back in the cab to watch the rain fall on the window. We figured that Baby Beluga was rebelling in response to our conversation the previous night. Lying in the dark truck while the rain clinked on the shell, my boyfriend Tyler and I admitted that we were both road weary.
For the last five months, we hadn’t spent more than five consecutive days in one spot and hardly more than an hour apart. The constant moving left us both feeling unsatisfied and the negativity was beginning to seep into our relationship. Something needed to change.
It takes guts to quit a comfortable job and start an adventure. It takes even more guts to admit that your dream isn’t so dreamy and to find a solution.

Tip #1: Fix what’s broken

“Hey, how’s it going?”
I asked the squat tow truck driver who lumbered out of the truck wearing rain gear and a neon construction vest.
“Better than you!” he replied, cracking up at his own joke.
“So, where ya wanna go?”
“Canadian Tire please,” we replied.
“Hmm, you could go there, but I wouldn’t. I’d go to Nechako’s. They’re not open today, but no one is on a Sunday. Looks like you guys might be in Prince George for a while.”
Welcome to Prince George, the largest city in northern British Columbia, where, according to our brief tour guide, “they’ve moved all of the hookers out of downtown recently and my neighbor is a tweaker who just got busted for smuggling drugs (followed by spurts of solo laughter).” Lovely place.

Tip #2: Figure out where you want to be

He dropped us off in front of a car parts store and handed us a hefty bill commensurate to his plumber’s crack. We walked into the auto store and asked one of the employees if they had a part that might work for us. He stepped outside and looked at the truck.
“Sweet Jesus!” (Not exactly the reaction we hoped for.)
A few minutes and computer clicks later he confirmed that he couldn’t do anything for us, but the shops down the street may be able to when they opened at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
Truck Touring: What to Do When the Dream Isn’t So DreamyTyler trying to ignore the tow truck driver’s robust plumber’s crack as they inspect Baby Beluga in the industrial section of Prince George, Canada.

Tip #3: Let go of things outside of your control

We unloaded our bikes, filled our backpacks with computers, and biked to the library, Tim Horton’s Donut Shop, and Starbucks; following the wifi to the next locale as each one subsequently closed.
At some point earlier that day Tyler had turned and kissed me. “Happy 14-month anniversary,” he said.

Tip #4: Celebrate the little wins

By 9:30 p.m. the last minute Couchsurfing requests remained unanswered and the prospect of sleeping in the truck on a dark street in the industrial area of town sounded as unsafe as it does in writing.
Seventy-five dollars later we rolled our bikes into the cheapest motel we could find and cuddled up on the bed to watch Into the Woods. Both of us felt surprisingly pleased.
A few years ago, we may have foregone safety in the face of spending money. Now, perhaps wiser, but certainly more broke, we knew we had made the right decision.

Tip #5: Remember that you are never stuck

By noon the next day, the auto shop had patched up Baby Beluga and we were on our way. This time, though, we had a new goal and a direction.
Tyler wanted a place where he could practice web development and climb. I wanted a place where I could do some yoga and write. Both of us craved a real bed and bathroom, a small outdoorsy town, and a chance to do some volunteering. We changed the plan and pointed Beluga south towards Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where we worked in exchange for lodging through workaway.com and dedicated time to our goals without being on the move. That time reinvigorated us and reminded us how lucky we were to be able to freely determine where and how we spent our time.
On the road, there are so many elements outside of our control. That necessary fluidity is part of the adventure, but also difficult to accept. Tyler and I both learned a lot about who we thought we were and who we actually are on that trip. These lessons helped us find a solution to put our trip back on track, and I hope they help you too.

Liz Haas truck life
I’ve been living, climbing and hiking out of the back of my boyfriend’s 2009 Toyota Tacoma for the past two months.
We’ve shredded our skin on the Buttermilk’s crystals, peered into the Canyonlands, strolled along the Grand Canyon, and clipped bolts next to free-grazing goats at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. We’ve also learned a lot about the logistics of living with a basic truck topper as the “roof over your head.” 

Our setup

Overhead is a basic, fiberglass topper, which costs $600, including installation. Aluminum caps are often a little less expensive; however, they are not as warm and are much louder during precipitation.
Inside is a 4ft x 6ft x 13in table-like platform (our “bed”) with 4x4s for legs, 2x4s as a frame, and a thick slab of plywood on top, which is sturdy enough to support two people without additional slats underneath. I’d recommend lying a cheap twin flat sheet over the plywood to protect your sleeping bags from snagging on the rough plywood, and sleeping on an Organic highball bouldering pad (our mattress), which is surprisingly comfortable.
Using this setup, you’ll have about two feet of space between the pad and ceiling to sleep in. To put that in perspective: my broad-shouldered 6’1” boyfriend can just barely lie on his side.
Liz Haas truck life
Underneath the platform, our clothing, food, and kitchen supplies are stored in four 66-Quart rolling bins that we stack on top of one another and then roll in and out from under the platform. We push these all the way toward the front of the truck bed when they’re not in use. The cooler, rope bag, and two fabric storage bins housing our climbing gear are stored at the backend of the truck bed. Extra backpacks, my yoga mat, and a foam roller are stored along one side of the platform.
Compared to outfitting oneself for van life, setting up the truck was relatively quick and inexpensive. Budget about an hour for the truck topper installation, and at least six hours to build (and rebuild … ) the platform and organize the truck bed. Essentially, you can turn your truck into a home-in-a-day if you’re efficient. And compared to the $1500 to $3000 you’d spend renovating a van, the roughly $850 you’ll drop for a topper, wood, storage bins, and a two burner stove is a lot easier on one’s bank account.
truck life set up
However, before you start looking for truck toppers on Craigslist, you should understand what you’re getting yourself into (i.e., keep reading).

Here are seven things you should know before giving truck life a try

1. You’ll battle condensation every night

Leaving the topper windows cracked overnight essentially does nothing to prevent enough moisture build-up to make icy water droplets falling from the sopping roof your daily alarm clock.
Leave the back windows cracked while you drive to let things air out—otherwise, you’ll be battling mold too.

2. There is even less room for activities than you’d think

Once inside one’s sleeping bag, the truck is cozy and comfortable, but army crawling in and worming my way out often involves getting my hair caught on the rough ceiling and/or hitting my head.
Not rushing to get in and out of one’s sleeping bag is key. Having to pee at 2 a.m. is quite unfortunate.

3. Your new biggest fear: rain

Unlike van life, one cannot simply slip from the driver’s seat to the back without exiting the vehicle. Running through a downpour to struggle into my sleeping bag at night is my biggest fear.
Truck toppers are not 100% waterproof, leaking a little at the back, so make sure to store your clothes away from the truck flap and preferably in a waterproof plastic bin. Pull under covered gas stations if you need to get something out of the back while traveling in the rain, and find pavilions to cook under during meal-time monsoons.

4. The cab will house most of your daily essentials

Even with large rolling bins for your extra clothes, camp stove, and canned goods, your daily climbing and sleeping attire, favorite snacks, basic toiletries, can opener, and other often-used items will inevitably wind up behind the bench seat, in the cup holders, and on the floor of the cab.

5. You go to bed really, really early

Especially if it’s late fall, winter, or early spring, once the sun goes down and dinner is done, you inevitably start heading toward your sleeping bag.
With half your stuff in the cab (see number 4 above) and little headroom in the back, it’s unlikely that you’ll stay up late reading—what I thought I’d be doing most nights—and the idea of sleeping in and wasting precious daylight during these chilly months is enough to justify curling up for the night at 7:30pm.

6. You don’t always love “living the dirtbag dream”

Most days you’re in love with the mountains, hand cracks, and boulders, but not every day is sunny, sending-filled happiness.
You get flat tires, it pours mid-way through cooking dinner, you get lost on the way to the crag, you lose feeling in your fingers cleaning your dishes in freezing canyons, you bang your head twice getting out of your sleeping bag, and sometimes you just want a hot shower and a couch. But, you’re a lucky duck living the dream and should love every minute of it, right?
Not if we’re being realistic. Everyone has hard days, even while living and climbing in their favorite places on earth. Accept the hard days, assess why you’re feeling down, and then make little changes to fix the little things that are bugging you—whether you need to treat yourself to chocolate once a week or find a better place for your extra hiking boots.
Never underestimate the power of morale and your ability to boost it.

7. Trucks are not the best long-term option

It’s good for a few months, but, if you’re planning a six-plus month-long trip, the ability to cook inside, the added space and sleeping head room, and ease of getting in and out of bed makes a van the preferable long-term “mobile home.”
However, if you own a truck and would like to purchase (or already have) a basic topper, the amazing places that living in your current vehicle will allow you to see far outweigh the above discomforts.

This week’s Friday Flick Pick takes a dive into highlights from G.G.B.Y. (Gobble, Gobble, Bitches, Yeah), an annual grassroots gathering that takes place at the Fruit Bowl outside of Moab, Utah around Thanksgiving, bringing together highliners, BASE jumpers, and countless other adventurers to celebrate a wide and wild array of unconventional disciplines.
Here at G.G.B.Y.—a visionary event brought to life by Sketchy Andy (Lewis) and Terry Acomb—it’s commonplace to see folks leaping off of 400-foot cliffs at every angle; whether that be on a massive rope swing, with a parachute, or on a rope-attached mountain bike. They might even be naked, too.It’s like the Burning Man of climbing, slacklining, highlining, rope swinging, paramotoring and BASE jumping all combined.

Evan Hau, who did his first 9a in 2013, has done Seleccio Natural 9a in Santa Linya. (c) Firnenburg brothers " Yes!! My second 9a! Feels good, I haven't climbed this grade since 2013 even though I feel much stronger than I was back then. After sampling this route last year I knew I had to come back to give it a solid try! One of the best climbs I have ever been on!"
Description: 
Ruben Firnenburg has finished his long term 9a project in Santa Linya, Seleccio natural. Nice projecting video from April by Henning Wang, who also took the picture. "When I got back on Seleccio my expectations were still pretty low but once I made it through the hardest crux in the middle I knew it's on. Sealing the deal on the last big move (same move as Analogica) was a very big relief! This route is certainly the hardest route I've done so far and climbing two 9a's in only four days is the best gift I could have ever made myself before 2017. Speaking of 2017 I am looking forward to go to USA for a boulder trip at the end of January. For the upcoming winter training I will include more bouldering on rock and therefore start off in Norway in a couple of days. Psyche is very high! Talking about competitions the idea is to do more boulder competitions and involve speed training as my brother David and I want to go for the Olympics in 2020. Now that I am out of Youth I can also focus more on the World Cup circuit."

This year I decided I wanted to try something new with the podcast. This episode is a narrative-style podcast, similar to what you would find on NPR with shows like This American Life, RadioLab, Serial, or TED Radio Hour. This episode specifically was produced for a class I took this semester on Radio News Production. Therefore, there were some requirements for the episode that I would change in future episodes, but you get the point.
Either way, I hope you like it. I’d like to do more of these shows in the future for competitions, events like Outdoor Retailers, or mini-series specials. Let me know what you think!

Gianluca Piras has published a horror video from a 6b+ in Masua, Lovely Licia. The glue-in bolt was just some ten years old but it breaks in his hands after seconds. Maurizio Oviglia, a Sardinia local, says that the first breakage on the island happened in 2012 and later at least another 20 stainless steel 304 bolts have got broken. The terryfying fact is that bolts which appear to be in quite good shape can break as well due to SCC internal stress corrosion cracks, mainly in marine environment. We have asked the bolt manufacturer Raumer to comment and we will follow up. Here is the UIAA report from 2015, warning against stress corrossion. Oviglia would like to spread the info that bolts are at risk, especially in Biddiriscottai, Casarotto, Millennium and Cala Fuili/Cala Lina. It should also be mentioned that the glue-in bolt should have been placed much deeper so that the ring would have contact with the rock.

Within Spain’s Picos de Europa National Park exist two forms of what are known as Orbayu —one denoting the drizzling mist that settles into the area’s valleys and cliffs, and the other, a stunning 500-meter, 13-pitch climb bearing an incredibly technical 5.14b (8c) crux. Situated at 2000 meters high, not only do the challenges emerge from the climb’s intense exposure, but from the sparse and unreliable protection relied upon throughout.
In this full-length film presented by Petzl, we witness the Orbayu‘s intensity as climbers Nina Caprez and Cédric Lachat make a gripping attempt on what they describe as a
… truly massive awe-inspiring route.
What transpires as a battle of maintaining and honing psych—even at one’s wit’s end—serves as a worthwhile look into what it takes both mentally and physically to project and tackle hard multi-pitch routes.

photos* of and by thomas woodson, joey schusler, and sam seward biking the huayhuash mountain range in the peruvian andes. with a climb to over fifteen thousand feet, the route they planned for had only been completed once before by bicycle. as woodson puts it, riding a bicycle in this terrain at that altitude is “like pushing a wheelbarrow up a staircase while trying to breath through a drinking straw.”

Adam Ondra, who now has 51 000+ followers on his Instagram proudly sums up his six weeks in Yosemite. (c) Pavel Blazek "Yosemite climbing is hard. Like really hard. The Free Nose is even harder. @_linacolina_ 's (Lynn Hill) achievement is one the most radical achievements in the climbing history, in my opinion, still not fully appreciated. Hats off. The Dawn Wall is the hardest. I am proud to have done it. Possibly my proudest achievement im climbing. Nevertheless, the effort I had to make is incomparable to what @tommycaldwell and @kjorgeson had to go through, not knowing where to climb and if it is climbable. I think they can be way prouder than me for what they did. El Cap is bad ass. That is the fact. No choss."
