Article: Grand Teton Solo
A good story-- both for us to read and for you to live.

Article: Sterling Rope Factory Tour
Nice TR, and it makes me want to put Sterling on my list when I'm ready for a new cord.

Article: "Kalos Ilthes stee Kalymno" (Welcome Back to Kalymnos)
"More matter, with less art, Polonius."
Other than that, a nice TR. Kalymnos is definitely on my tick list.

Article: Pete Takeda: An Eye at the Top of the World
Just finished reading the book. If you want to read a well-written book about climbing Nanda Devi, this is it. If you really want to know more about the CIA caper, maybe not so much. That was my biggest disappointment-- that there wasn't more about the CIA listening device. I guess I wanted some kind of closure on it, and because it's the CIA, the fact of the matter may be that there will never be closure on it. But overall, I enjoyed the book. I would have enjoyed it more if I had been primed for "Climbing Nanda Devi. Oh, and a little about the CIA stuff." Also, as someone mentioned, it needs proofreading badly. It was almost distracting at times. Not editing, mind you, but plain old proofreading.
