How Did You Get Started?

How did you get started climbing? What led to climbing? What type of climbing do you do? How did you learn climbing techniques? Just wondering how people make the jump from hiking to mountaineering and climbing.

Next summit for trekker with Multiple Sclerosis? Next summit for trekker with Multiple Sclerosis?

I've tackled 5 tame summits with my wife, who has MS. Guadalupe peak, the highest point in Texas and two other 8000ft peaks the same week were the first 3. Then just a couple weeks ago, we tacked Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico as well as stoping by Mt Walter on the way. Wheeler peak showed me that she was capable of more than I gave her credit for. It was a ...

Altimeter app

Hello everybody!

I'm an app developer and a few times a year I also go climb mountains.
I noticed that most apps in the App Store that measure your height aren't accurate and really don't look good.
So, my question is if anyone would be interested in such an app and if so which features it should really include.
Feel free to drop all your thoughts below!
If their is enough interest I will make ...

Hi Guys,
We are going to be in your beautiful country in Sept, driving west from Denver to Utah. Previously based in Durango we did multi day trips into Vestal Lake and did the Trinities and Arrow Peak. Another trip into Chicago Basin and then on into Canyonlands. We are looking for suggestions for the same sort of thing in the northern half of Colerado and/or Eastern Utah.

Do you recognize this mountain range?

Hi. I'm wondering if anyone can identify the mountain range in this old photo, probably from the 1950's? (It's an old lampshade actually). Thanks for looking.

Tour Monte Rosa - Theodul glacier Tour Monte Rosa - Theodul glacier

Hi we are looking to walk the Tour of Monte Rosa in Mid/late July. We will start in Zermatt and wish to cross the glacier from Trockener Steg. I will probably ask around in Zermatt as to the conditions but hope to trek to the Theodul hut without a guide rope etc. I have skied there in the winter and generally know the area. I have walked on dry glaciers without gear but don't wish ...

Seen this method of tying the Alpine Butterfly before?

Check out this link:

https://youtu.be/0wupL8dPTzw

This method of tying the Alpine Butterfly does not seem to be widely known, but it has advantages over the traditional methods:

1) speed
2) easily tied with rope weight below you
3) easy to make large loops

Hello all, I have a good amount of backpacking experience and about 6 years of sport climbing experience, fairly fit and have been training for a summit for a while, just unsure which one top attempt.

Since I am new to mountaineering I am not looking for an Everest, but I am also not looking for something simple, I am willing to push myself. Also, I am looking to use a guide since I do ...
