Sleeping in the Sky

In 2019 Tino Villanueva and Alan Rousseau completed the first alpine-style ascent of Tengi Ragi Tau (6938m) in Nepal. Before reaching the highpoint of success, they had to cross valleys of near misses and failures. In this story Villanueva shares some lessons he learned through a decade of visiting the Greater Ranges.

To Everest, and Back

After the 1963 American Mt. Everest Expedition, James T. Lester led five Sherpas on a tour across the US. Thirty-five years later, Lester revisited Nepal to learn what had become of the AMEE Sherpas. Herein, Alison Jean Lester and Pasang Yangjee Sherpa consider what James Lester's travel photos and writings reveal, not only about himself but also about the journeys of the Sherpa men he met.


Lucas Roman became fast friends with Brad Gobright while working together at a climbing gym in 2007. Gobright eventually earned fame for his bold rock climbing before he died in 2019. What many people didn't see, Roman writes, was the inner light that guided him through the setbacks he'd faced since birth.

Contours: A Climber's Call to National Monuments

From 2016 through 2019, McKenzie Long visited thirteen national monuments in an effort to understand their importance. From sandstone cracks in Bears Ears National Monument to the Chihuahuan Desert of New Mexico and the Franklin Mountains outside El Paso, Texas, Long explores what's at stake for Indigenous communities, climbers and the future of public lands.
