How many people have climbed icebergs?

I'm trying to figure out how many people have climbed icebergs, not beached bergs in Antarctica, but icebergs completely surrounded by water. I know Will Gadd and Ben Firth did it. Twight climbed icebergs for a cigarette commercial. Who else has climbed icebergs?

"Similar" mountains in the world

Hello SP'ers!!

I don't know if this is the best place to open the topic, but I prefer open here than South America regional board, because more people can show another examples and similarities about rock formations or mountains in the world.

I have a good example about this research, showing two places of different continents: South America and Africa. In despite of these two continents were united ( all continents ), the coincidence is ...

(Elves, I posted this in General since it has potential repercussion for the broader climbing community, IMO. Feel free to move to AK/CAN if you disagree.)

Vaccinations + Diamox

Two weeks ago I headed out to a vaccination clinic to pick up all my vaccines for Tanzania for my Kili/Kenya trip this summer. Picked up the essential: Yellow fever, hep A, malaria pill perscription etc. but it's bugging me as the nurse is absolutely adament about perscribing Diamox as she tries to sell it off as a be-all-end-all wonder drug to cure whatever ails you. At the time of my vaccinations she didn't have ...

LIVESTRONG Grassroots Fundraising

Hey all. My name is Craig and I have started a donation program with the Lance Armstrong Foundation that I call Hiking for the Cure. Each time I head up to bag some new ADK High Peaks or out to get some of the NE 4000ers, I will collect pledges for the fight against cancer. As I have done with my grandmother, I'm sure many of you have known someone who has battled this terrible ...

Quick question re:hiking Coyote Buttes, Vermillion Cliffs

Does the trek to The Wave have any of this along the way? I read it's about 2.5 miles but just wanted ...

What is Spring Like Where You Live?

Probably more "off-route" than general climbing, but....

What is Spring weather like where you live? Is spring a nice time of year? I'll be moving in less than a year and I am really, really, really looking forward to leaving Flagstaff. I'm curious to know what places I might go to are like, and then just trying to remember a time when Spring was something to look forward to, and not a miserable season of ...
