I walked around the corner and saw an upside down man, perfectly carved to give the feeling of flight or falling. At first, I thought perhaps the image was inverted because the boulder had rolled after the petroglyph had been carved.
But then I saw other images, right side up, just a little more faintly carved in the rock. It was clear the artist meant to show this man was falling. These ancient climbers of Bears Ears knew the risks. They lost loved ones. They continued to do what was needed to defend their families and their precious corn crops.
They built in ridiculously high and inaccessible places. Climbing was a necessity, not a luxury. First photo by mikeylikesrocks - second and third from the author. In the late s, experts point to drought and other environmental stressors impacting the Puebloan people in the Southwest leading toward societal collapse. Resources like food and water became increasingly scarce, and preventing theft or raids by other groups was paramount to survival.
A few years earlier, when things were more stable, the thought of scaling the cliffs above the community to store food was likely not the first consideration of many within these communities. However, as stressors began to increase, these cliffs looked more enticing, as they provided the best protection for food stores from raids. Some of the more accessible cliffs had already been looted many times before; now the pressure was on to find a more permanent solution.
The thought of dying from a cliff fall or a rope breaking was likely less intimidating than a slow death from starvation. All subs start with Volume 16 and Volume 17 is due later this month.

We are working on a story about helmets saving lives For the next zine! I remember being hypnotized on my first long climb. I stare into the dizzying depths of the Black Dike, the churning granite and feldspar crystals spinning away into oblivion. The wind whips my hair into a frenzy across my face.
Aid agencies and NGOs across the globe have been reacting with horror to the news that new legislation in Iraq was carefully put in place last year by the US that will effectively bring the whole of the country's agricultural sector under the control of trans-national corporations TNCs.

I imagine gliding across the glassy Southern Ocean waters. My paddle dips into the inky surface, breaking the grease ice, rivulets running off the oar.
The white ice forms a broken jigsaw puzzle stretching out over an endless black expanse to the horizon. I remember descending into the Colorado Plateau, falling in love. I imagine what it would be like to wake up suspended in midair on a portaledge. My feet dangle over a seemingly infinite drop.
I count slowly in my head—one one thousand—the time it would take to fall to the ground—two one thousand—the alpine glow blushing—three one thousand—across the white granite wall—four one thousand. For the last couple years, there had been a lot of these days; in fact, my entire life was now planned around them. We had three zines published before we even had a website!
