what attracted you

What attracted you to the sport? Did some family or friends take you on a trip? Did you enjoy climbing a wall? Everybody has their own story.
I went skiing when I was in the fourth grade and fell in love with mountains. In 2010 I went to Alaska and lived going around the mountain views. Then I thought to myself "I wonder how these pictures would be if I took them from the opposite ...

'Easiest' State Highpoint over 10k Feet.

I don't think there's such a thing so I'll route it to 'least difficult' of them. I, personally think Wheeler would take the top on this, but you'd pretty much have to do all of those in order to know.

What is a "high-clearance vehicle?"

I posted this question to LonePeakFreak re: directions to Beaver Basin below Waas Peak in Utah's La Sal mountains (http://www.summitpost.org/beaver-basin-via-waas-green-saddle/158936), but then noticed he hadn't logged on in a few years, so I'll open this up to general discussion/argument. My question was:
I hope I can get a bit more details about what is meant by "high clearance." Having driven for years on infrequently maintained and unmaintained roads in the Washington Cascades (the road to ...

Efficiently Melting Snow for Drinking Water Project

Hi all! We are a group of four seniors in high school working on creating a better method as to melting snow to be used for drinking water. We got this idea while one member of our group was climbing Mt. Rainer and utilized a gas stove to melt snow. Our team feels that we can create a more efficient and lightweight method for melting snow for drinkable water. It would be a big help ...

most dangerous

What was the most dangerous thing you have encountered while hiking/climbing? Was it a lose rock on a steep ledge? Sudden lightning storm? Or maybe some kind of animal?
Mine is the third. I was on Guadalupe Peak Trail and, on my way back down, I heard one of the scariest noises possible while hiking in the dessert. I had come across a northern black-tailed rattlesnake. Every Texan knows that all rattlesnakes are deadly w/o ...

Running outside in cold or use treadmill?

Hey guys,

I'm just curious as to what everyone's opinion is with running on a treadmill vs running outside in cold. Personally I prefer running outside, however it is starting to get real cold out there. My concern though is that whenever I run on a treadmill it just doesn't feel like I am getting the same effective workout as running outside, not to mention that I feel like a hamster on a wheel. lol ...

Mount everest talk?

Hello everyone!

I saw a talk (on youtube I think) a while back by a female mountain guide that guided a climb on everest.
I can't find that Video anymore despite looking a lot, so I was thinking maybe one of you might be able to do so.

Here are a few things I remember from the talk:
She talked about her education as a mountain guide.
I remember that one of her clients was ...

Need help in finding a climber's name

Hi guys. didn't really know where to post this. I thought is more appropriate here as I'm not looking for a climbing partner.

This summer I've met a group of Czech climbers while in Switzerland. We found each other on Monch summit and next day I joined them to Gross Fiescherhorn.
As stupid as it seems, I did not take any contact details. I have a few pictures and some videos of them and viceversa. ...
