Guidance (Central/Southern America)

My name is Nathan Fuller and I am a student at the university of Cumbria in England. Me and two friends are in the early stages of looking to come and conduct an expedition in Central or Southern America. Our original plan was to climb Doyles Delight (Belize) however after speaking to a few other people they have said it is near impossible to organize yourself. As part of our course we have to ...

Where to go?

Hi everyone,

My girlfriend and I are moving to Canada this November/December to work for a year, maybe a bit more. So we're looking for a place where I can pretty much take up ice climbing and mountaineering full time, I'm new to mountaineering and ice climbing but want to bring myself to a reasonably high standard. My girlfriend doesn't climb, but were both keen to do some back country skiing, her more than me ...

Our American "Blank Spots"

If we were to hang a map on the wall and put a tack in all the places I've either visited, climbed or hiked, there would be some "blank spots" on it with few or no tacks. It would be different for every person.

Anyway, here are my blanks spots for the western United States highlighted in red:


The orange dots represent the places I have lived either permanently or for extended periods of ...

M (Mixed) Ratings

So I've seen very little on this, apart from some very general discussions, mostly applying to the ratings once you get to doing the extreme overhanging routes such as those found in Wyoming or Utah.

<b>Does anyone have any knowledge into how to classify this rating system? </b>

I've been doing some dry-tooling/mixed climbing in Utah, Tahoe and the Bay Area, but I've had no idea how to classify the routes! I can definitely attest, ...

A Gathering of Mortality...

I don't know how appropriate it is for me to draw attention to an article of my own making, but it has to do with an issue that sooner or later (hopefully the latter!) will affect us all. Life and death, climbing and not climbing, mountains or naught...it'll eventually be all too real. Which it is for me. Now. How does one share this sort of thing? Emotional, tough stuff—quite difficult to set down in ...
