underrated

Is mountaineering underrated? Your opponent is nature. It's possibly the most physically demanding of all. You don't get a ring for success. You don't have sponsors. It's not on TV. It's funded by the people who do it. It's probably the only sport that is done on every continent. It, in my opinion, is by far the most rewarding of all sports.

Eclipse with Glacier Glasses?

I'm heading to the Wind Rivers on August 21st for the full eclipse but want to protect my eyes from permanent damage. I have a pair of Julbo Explorer Glacier Sunglasses which are said to have 100% UV protection and block 95% of visible light. Despite how dark it feels wearing them, I'm mostly concerned about invisible rays. I'm leaning on not using them but am curious what others think. I've heard that there are ...

RJ Secor's Mysterious Unclimbed Peak

In the Third Edition of High Sierra: Peaks, Passes, and Trails, Secor mentions that he knows of one peak in the Sierra that does not have a recorded first ascent, but that he won't reveal the name or location and that he never plans to climb it himself.
