Name This Mystery Peak

Being a dairy farmer and a peakbagger I found this 1963 magazine cover interesting. Who can name this United States mountain that is over 12,000' of elevation?

Travel & climbing insurance for Interanational travel

So I am in need of travel & climbing insurance for a potential trip to Nepal in October. It is a requirement with the company I am planning on using. While I have been to Mexico and SA on climbing trips I didn't purchase any insurance for those trips so this is totally new to me.

Anything to look for or request? Any recommendations? They had Global Rescue as one company but seeing as how ...

help with grad school snowshoeing survey


My name is Beth and I'm a student in the Washington state Mountaineers Basic Alpine Climbing class. I'm also a graduate student at Seattle University studying Sport Management. I'm working with snowshoes.com and my Seattle U advisor to do a survey about snowshoeing.

Complete newbie here, looking for advice

Hi all, I'm 28 years old and I would like to start working towards some mountaineering. I climbed a fair amount in high school (just bouldering and sport routes), but it has been quite some time. In college I started playing rugby and got up to 240 lbs which made climbing not very feasible. It had always been a dream of mine to climb some of the higher mountains though, and even though my thoughts ...
