Despite its air of danger and risk, rock climbing in its pure form is really a sport of grace, discipline, precision and strategy. To watch an expert climber is to witness a blend of dance and the martial arts. On the indoor climbing wall at Irvine's Sporting Club at Lakeshore Towers, Lynn Hill is giving a wordless lesson in the aesthetics of climbing.

Lynn Hill was 13 when she caught her first glimpse of majestic Yosemite Valley and, by her account, the view "stunned me like no other landscape before." She had no idea at the time that she would be forever drawn to Yosemite National Park, and to other places in the world where towering rock walls were part of the landscape.

To non-climbers, the phrase "Free the Nose" might sound like a bit of nonsense--or perhaps the demands of a peculiar protest group--but to climbing aficionados it represents one of the sport's long-sought goals. The Nose is one of Yosemite's classic big-wall climbing routes, one that ascends straight along the prow of El Capitan, the 3,000-foot granite monolith that is one of the national park's landmarks.

Approaching my middle 60s, I am only now beginning to appreciate what a rich and complex relationship I have with this body that has carried me around for so long. Not that I haven't been preoccupied with it before--with its strengths and weaknesses, with how it might appear to others, with its familiar aches and gripes. But I have only recently begun to fully understand, in the flesh and bones, the extent to which body and mind are integrally related to each other.

Ruth Macklin's fine article fails to poignantly underscore the woefully misguided historical rationale for surgical penalty. During the American era of slavery, castration was the ultimate (symbolic) emasculation of mythologically hypersexed black male slaves. Later at the turn of the 19th Century, when castration was generally prescribed as punishment among the underclass (those warehoused in penal institutions and on mental wards), the empirical data documents that castrated rapists and molesters used guns instead to assault since the issue has always been anger and aggression, not sex nor intimacy!
