“I’ve spent four summers climbing in Squamish, B.C. The Chief offers world-class multipitch routes and the cragging is unrivaled. Neither is that scenery! This is a shot Dan Krauss got of me climbing The Shadow (5.13-). One of the greatest corner climbs on the planet.” [Photo] Dan Krauss @dankrauss @bradgobright
This week as part of the #alpinistcommunityproject, we're sharing work from Brad Gobright, a climber who has become widely known for his free solos and ability to keep a cool head in risky situations. Brad set a new speed record on the Nose of El Capitan with Jim Reynolds on October 21, finishing the iconic route in 2 hours, 19 minutes, 44 seconds—4 minutes and 2 seconds faster than the record of 2:23:46 set by Alex Honnold and Hans Florine in 2012. Brad told Climbing Magazine that it was the most dangerous thing he’s ever done. The bio he wrote for this series didn’t mention any of that. He simply wrote, “I've been a traveling climber for the last nine years, living out of my car and working odd jobs to support the never-ending road trip. I enjoy all types of climbing but especially long and adventurous trad climbs. A long day in a wild place is when I'm most happy. For this series, I'm sharing some of my favorite photos from the last nine years.”

Inside Alpinist 60 are more than 112 pages of finely crafted essays and beautifully curated photos of elusive and wild vertical landscapes. This issue features Part II of the Mountain Profile of la Meije, in which Erin Smart chronicles the history of the mountain that managed—as the novelist Édouard Estaunié once wrote—to “live a life apart,” while Paula Wright, Claude Gardien, Bruno Gardent and Pascal Tournaire share stories from its quiet slopes.
Elsewhere in the magazine, James Edward Mills recounts the story of Hugues Beauzile, the son of a Haitian immigrant who became one of the most promising alpinists in France before his untimely death in 1995. Denali pilot and artist Leighan Falley illustrates the mountains of Alaska as seen from above. Jérôme Sullivan recalls a remote journey into Greenland to climb a new line on the icy Apostelens Tommelfinger (2300m). Katie Ives ponders vanishing landscapes of glaciers, and Jeff Snyder journeys through layers of history into the Grand Canyon in pursuit of a first free ascent on the storied Zoroaster Temple. Shawnté Salabert recalls an unusual Yosemite heroine. Nick Aiello-Popeo, Alexa Flower, Tami Knight, Alex McKiernan and McKenzie Long share stories from the climbing life. David Roberts revisits the curiosities of Fontainebleau forest, while David Stevenson recounts a harrowing night in an Alaskan snow cave. And Jeremy Collins pays tribute to Hayden Kennedy and Inge Perkins. And much more…
