I need help finding next climb

Hi, I'm new here at this forum, I hope some one can help me.
I'm looking to see if any one has any suggestions on where I can climb this august(late), based on my skill set which I'll go on about below.

I currently do some hiking, normally non mountainous. I recently did a portion of the Superior Hiking Trail in Minnesota, It was moderately strenuous, with a total alt gain of about 1500 ft. ...

American Guiding Industry Standards - A great discussion

Howdy folks,
Please forgive: I posted this link in another thread, but there's enough "meat and potatoes", value and high quality in the article and comments and responses on this link that I think it deserves it's own thread. I hope you agree.

Votes vs Hits

Just wondering why so few people seem to vote on submissions lately. I have pages that have lots of hits but few votes. When observing the recognition of any page I take that measure more from the hits than the votes. This give the sense that voting tends to be an exclusive club on SP that some of us enjoy sharing. To others it doesn't much matter long as the beta on the page is ...

How do I climb?

So basically I'm a complete novice. I have a fair amount of backpacking experience, but I was in college for the last 4ish years in an area with no nearby natural rock, and only have gotten out a handful of times. I haven't even been a consistent gym climber in that time frame, so while I think I could send a top rope 5.8, that's probably my current limit.

I have a teensy bit of ...

Climbing gear in the US

Hi all,

This june I'm finally planning a trip to the US and looking forward to experience mountaineering on a different continent. I was wondering if you guys know a mountaineering store near Las Vegas and if prices are much more different from here in Europe. More in detail: do they sell La Sportiva or Scarpa mountaineering boots somewhere near Las Vegas?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Getting started, any tips?

Just looking to make climbing my life in the somewhat near future. I'm currently only 1 year active duty in the Navy, so I still have a ways to go until I can really pursue this. Hoping to get some advice on where I can start researching about how to begin the process to becoming a mountain guide. I figure the earlier I figure this out, the faster I can start training/school, even before my ...

Dear friends,
The dreaded time has arrived. Paulo Schmidt AKA PAROFES has passed away. Knowing that the end was near, in February of this year, he asked me to write an article about him to post after he is gone. I am honored that he asked me and I will do so very soon. I know that many of you had special feelings for PAROFES, and he was thankful to have so many great friends ...

New member introduction

I have spent my entire adult life abusing hard drugs and living with abusive men. For the last year I have been getting my act together. I didn't think about mountains until I got clean. I grew up in the city and could have cared less about anything outside my block. When I was introduced to mountains via movies and the internet I became obsessed. When times get really hard and I think I might ...
