Stripped down of everything except, in some cases, a pair of rock shoes, the climbers are distilled to their proper place, merely one note in the natural symphony—and not the dominant one. Yet at the same time, their understated, elegant presence—invariably, the men and women Fidelman shoots are young, honed, and attractive—as they interact with the stone draws out why these landscapes appeal to us as climbers. But the main attraction is the images, artfully laid out in sizes ranging from spot photos to two-page spreads, presenting climbers in destinations ranging from California, to the South, to Argentina, to Colorado, to Utah and Nevada and beyond. The book also features traditional, unpeopled landscape shots, as well as a handful of more traditional nudes—the models simply out in nature, and not climbing. And there were plenty of images I had not seen before, all of them aesthetically arresting and perfectly composed.

Halsey just posted a very alarming and confusing Instagram , and it requires your immediate attention. She climbed a rock without her clothes on!! Take a minute to picture scaling a rock wall, in nature, au naturel. What would possess someone to do such a thing?! Maybe Halsey meant indoor rock climbing?? Would that make this better or worse? That injury looks not fun.

Watch fullscreen. No Rope, No Chalk There has always been a desire amongst climbers to strive for the purest style of ascent, the most natural style if you will, the one least encumbered by artificial assistance and closest to the climbing practiced by other animals. Trad climbing is obviously a purer method of ascent than sport climbing. But trad climbing still requires plenty of gear and is nowhere near as natural as soloing.
