Olympic Torch to Zipline Across River

Ever since Olympic basketball gold medalist Sergei Belov's memorable torch run in 1980 at the Moscow Games where he appeared to run over the heads of athletes into Central Lenin Stadium, lighting the Olympic Cauldron has become one of the most anticipated events of the Opening Ceremonies. We've seen the fire lit via bow and flaming arrow (Barcelona, 1992), and from a pool of water (Sydney, 2000).

Kayaking memories on the White Salmon River

I almost missed my chance to kayak the White Salmon River before it changed forever. After dropping off the kids at school, packing, making last-minute phone calls and sending last-minute emails, I left the house an hour later than planned. With a five-hour drive and only the afternoon of a late October day ahead of me, I had almost given up on the idea of paddling before my trip even started.

Some of the finest — and hardest — limestone routes in North America are located in Rifle Mountain Park, which features 200 bolted sport routes, few rated below 5.10, with average grades more like 5.12. But a move submitted to the Colorado Division of Wildlife this past fall by the Rifle Climbers Coalition (RCC), with backing from the Access Fund, to expand routes in the area has just been rejected unanimously by a 14-member panel of the state wildlife commission.

Towering challenges

On summiting, and saving, the desert

By Elizabeth Miller
When water washed away the red sandstone of the Colorado Plateau, it left the improbable spires of rust-colored rock, fingers flipping off the over-baking sun and the sand-spitting wind and the improvised protection the climbers who lusted after the tops of those towers would have to rely on in pursuit of a summit. It’s these spires that Steve “Crusher” Bartlett explores in his book, Desert Towers: Fat Cat Summits and Kitty Litter Rock, a historic tome loaded with images to twang the imaginations of any climber who loves to lock hands with splitter cracks.
