    Mountain Profile
    In his Sierra guidebook The Good, the Great, and the Awesome, Peter Croft calls the Palisades "the most mountainous mountains in the Sierra Nevada." Half-hidden behind foothills, these spiny 13,000- to 14,000- foot peaks have allured decades of alpinists, eccentrics and wanderers. Doug Robinson follows a "trail of mentors" that leads from the early mountaineers of the Sierra Club, to generations of prolific soloists such as the eccentric Norman Clyde, to the PSOM guides and the merry band of Armadillos—and to the legendary "poetry-reciting Zen truck driver" Smoke Blanchard, who declared that mountaineering should be both "picnic and pilgrimage." Daniel Arnold, Joan Jensen, Peter Croft and Cameron Burns share tales of their own quests amid the quiet, wild stone.

    In his 1969 classic, Challenge of the North Cascades, Fred Beckey described the Picket Range of Washington State as "fortresses ringed by cliffs and jungle." And with names such as Terror, Fury, Challenger and Phantom, their summits have long seemed like part of some mythological realm beyond the reach of modern development. Fifty Years after the passage of the Wilderness Act, designed to protect such places, Forest McBrian explores the evolving ways that climbers here have imagined and approached the "wild" through this issue's Mountain Profile of the Pickets. Meanwhile, Alex Honnold looks beyond the momentary purity of ascent he reached on his free solo of Sendero Luminoso (5.12+), El Potrero Chico, at the complex impacts of professional climbing. And when Charlie Porter died on February 23, 2014, he left behind a legacy of underreported adventures. Yet his friends never forgot their experiences with him. Gary Bocarde, Sibylle Hechtel, Alan Burgess, Russell McLean and Stephen Venables share a few memories of one of the twentieth century's greatest climbers.

    For more than 100 years, small bands of climbers have struggled through rain-soaked forests to reach the great ice and rock lines of the Darran Mountains in New Zealand And yes, even today, many of the vast walls remain largely unknown. In this issue's Mountain Profile, Paul Hersey sifts through the rich stories of this oft-forgotten range, from the early days of Maori exploration to Guy McKinnon's 2013 first ascent of the 1900-meter West Face of Tutoko. Meanwhile, in the American desert, The final words Harvey T.

    $17.95
    Beyond the crowds on Vinson's normal route, much of the Sentinel Range of Antarctica is a quiet fortress of precise geometry that remains scarcely visited. Yet despite the storms and bitter cold, a few climbers—like Mugs Stump and Erhard Loretan—have ventured up big routes in this unearthly landscape, usually in alpine style, often unheralded and alone. After years of mapping the region, Damien Gildea pieces together the history in this issue Mountain Profile. On the dirty, great and groaning Troll Wall in Norway, Andy Kirkpatrick begins to run out of willing partners. He finds the solution in two skiers who have no idea what lies ahead. Meanwhile, the English poet Helen Mort looks amid the gaps and silences of history at the life of Alison Hargreaves, whose memory still haunts the climbing community. While Peter Croft climbs with ghosts, Barry Blanchard responds to the Squishy Bunny Bunch; Editor Katie Ives and the artist Jeremy Collins honor the victims of the Nanga Parbat attack. Learn More

    The irrepressible Tami Knight highlights the climbs, characters and (occasionally substance-fueled) mayhem that have given the cliffs of Squamish not one, but three or four or five Golden Ages in this issue's Crag Profile. Voytek Kurtyka gives a rare interview—not about the climbs that make him a legendary figure in the history of Himalayan alpine-style climbing, but about perfectionism, love, hell and freedom. After wrangling his roommates, Jérôme Sullivan attempts a massive wall on Patagonia's Continental Ice Cap. Chris Van Leuven conjures Kor and Ingalls; Dan Hilden balances on his fence; and Matt Samet reverses the irreversible. Learn More
