VIDEO - Climbing Castle and Conundrum Peaks - Aspen, CO

Hi all!

CLICK HERE to watch the video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9AbQOmIa6g

I am extremely excited to bring you this week's video: Castle and Conundrum Peaks! We did this trip on Sunday, October 30th for a Halloween weekend extravaganza. This was BY FAR, my favorite 14er group that I've done to date. We were faced with whiteout conditions on the ascent of Castle, thigh deep snow in places, and lots of wind. All of these challenges made ...

Hi friends,

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIM8gREJJBI

On Sunday (10/2/16) I made my way down south to tackle Mt. Lindsey (Colorado) via the Northwest Ridge Route (class 3 and 4). I have only been hiking 14ers since July and this was my attempt at #10. This was the most beautiful hike I have EVER done and by the far the most challenging. This was my first attempt ...

Colin Haley Torre Traverse Presentation

I'm not on the Patagonia mailing list but a relative told me that Colin was going to be at the Patagonia Outlet in Salt Lake City last night so we wandered down. Looks like just a few more dates left (see below.) Nice guy, great photos and presentation and you might win something ... like me ... actually my husband won the jacket but decided he already had enough climbing clothes so he gave it ...

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:

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 ...
