Quote Of The Week
“When we start pushing the envelope, our most entrenched habits almost always take over. How could it be otherwise? When the river runs smooth, we’re all heroes. Only when the big water starts to roar can we find out where we stand and what we’re made of. And the key word here is “made”. What have we made ourselves?”
– John Long, Foreword, The Rock Warrior’s Way

John Long was one of the Stonemasters of Yosemite, who, along with Jim Bridwell and Billy Westbay, was the first to climb The Nose on El Capitan in a day. Today, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell hold the record for climbing it in under two hours. Watch their record attempt here.
