THE BIGGEST ADVENTURE OF ALL: LIFE

How Banjo Billy took life by the wheel

By Tom Winter
Boulder is full of the intense, the extreme, the committed. People who climb the highest mountains and kayak the most dangerous rivers. People who jump the biggest cliff and grapple with remote rock faces. In this swirling milieu of the hardcore it’s easy to overlook John Georgis.

Boulder’s Ice men

Will global warming make this North Pole expedition the last of its kind?

By Elizabeth Miller
Between the northernmost reaches of Canadian soil, at Cape Discovery on Ellesmere Island, and the North Pole, there is a jumble of frozen seawater and ice sheets that break apart and collide together again. It’s like plate tectonics, but these frozen plates are driven by wind, tides and ocean currents.

Gonzo swimming

By Tom Winter
New Orleans’ Lake Pontchartrain is only 12 feet deep. But that’s deep enough to drown. And you can drown there — that is, if the alligators don’t get to you first. And if the alligators do get you, you won’t have to worry about a coffin. The scraps of your flesh that they leave behind will be eaten by the bull sharks and the alligator gar: ugly prehistoric looking fish with massive jaws full of spiny teeth.

‘New Alpinism’ promotes cross training regimen for climbing success

Boulder roots, when training was cheating, and being in tune with yourself

By Mallane Dressel
Steve House was seeking a better way to train after he was forced to turn back during his attempt at Pakistan’s Masherbrum, a 25,659-foot peak, in 2003. He’d had overtrained for the climb, according to Scott Johnston, who stepped in to provide some advice.

The emerging tenkara, a simplistic fly-fishing technique

Bringing in a fish without a reel and winning people over

By Mallane Dressel
Usually the talk of the town in fly fishing is something progressive, like the next big deal in reel technology, but surprisingly the tenkara method boasts a more simplistic approach, where only a rod, a line and fly, are used. Tenkara purists take the minimalistic concept one step further.

By Alex Solomon

The May 4 World Run in Denver, a race organized to raise money for a cure for spinal cord injuries, has prompted Cloyd’s return to his former stomping grounds to do his part to get himself and so many others back on their feet.

Paddle through the parks

With river season on the rise, a survey of options from around the country

By Florence Williams
If the nation’s park units represent the heart of our natural legacy, the rivers flowing through them are the central arteries, the life-blood offering nourishment, habitat, shelter, and, of course, geological beginnings. Best yet for us visitors, they offer fun. As Water Rat says famously to Mole in Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows: “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

Planking into the record books

Local teen defies birth defects, eyes Guinness World Record

Gabi Ury looks, acts, and talks like your typical high school sophomore — sure, at four feet eight inches tall, Ury may not be at the head of her class in terms of height — but the lifelong Boulder resident is on the verge accomplishing something very few can say they have: becoming a Guinness World Record holder. She’s tackling that challenge despite facing significant medical issues that required over a dozen major surgeries throughout childhood.
