Dirt­bag dis­patches

Adventure - - Contents - By Derek Cheng

Amer­ica. Trump-land, mass shoot­ings, Mus­lim bans and nu­clear but­tons of un­ri­valled size. But the US is also an end­less won­der­land for the dirt­bag climber. And there are a lot of us - roam­ing, job­less rockchasers that scram­ble around on Yosemite gran­ite in the spring, head to the windswept, alpine faces of the high coun­try for the sum­mer, emerge in the au­tumn for the sand­stone deserts of Utah, and then scam­per south to Red Rock canyon for the win­ter. This rock cor­re­spon­dent has spent most of the past three years sam­pling North Amer­i­can rock and ice. Ad­ven­ture Mag­a­zine takes you on a tour of two of its most iconic rock des­ti­na­tions.
