Here are some stories I’ve written:
“The Peaks of Persia,” The Atlantic, April 2012. About the climbing exchange between the American Alpine Club and the Alpine Club of Iran. And here’s an interview Abbas Sabetian and I did about the exchange with NPR’s Robin Young for “Here and Now”: US and Iranian Climbers Practice Mountain Diplomacy.
“Pioneers of the Sky: 3 Books That Take Flight,” for NPR’s “Three Books” series, which aired on “All Things Considered” on March 16, 2012.
“Depth Chargers”, National Geographic, April, 2003. Caving in the Sultanate of Oman. Here’s a link to some fun field notes from the trip.
“Stone Cold Ascent”, National Geographic, March, 2000. A winter ascent of Cerro Torre’s West Face in Patagonia.
Gorp.com has several of my old articles posted: The Ever-Changing Sky, From Rock to Mountains: The Alpine Transformation, The North Face of Aguja Poincenot, and Wasting Time (my favorite of these four).
