In today’s New York Times Magazine, Ernest Hemingway’s granddaughter talks about mental illness, the family history of suicide, and how exercising out of doors—including cragging with her climber boyfriend—helps her keep the black dog at bay.

Some of the new age stuff in the article is risible, but most of us can relate to the beneficial, mood altering effects of the outdoors and adrenaline.

Her footwork leaves much to be desired, but the show looks pretty cool - yeah.

Thanks Rick: An interesting read to me, since I grew up in Ketchum.

Jack Hemingway arrived there the year I graduated from High School and left for college. I met the two older daughters in the next few years, but never really spent any time around them, other than skiing. I have friends who were close to those beautiful girls with a tragic future.

Glad it is turning out better for Mariel.

I wonder if there is anything symbolic in that she maybe can't see her shoes for her hair? I wonder if she even wanted to be photographed.

Joe asked:
"What crag is this?"

Sort of looks like Snake River limestone Joe. Perhaps, I'm not real sure. They've got over 400 bolted routes there now.

Winced more than once watching her slip on that low-angle limestone. Hopefully it's not as sharp as it looks.

Nothing wrong with that belay if the anchor is good and there's not a lot of slack in the system.
