http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... AB9-VGIkzM

For decades some of us have been stashing our food up on cliff ledges or atop big erratics where the ...

Are You Ready to Pay Fees Everywhere?

Greetings fellow climbers and hikers.

I'm posting this notice for those interested and concerned about the ongoing fee debacle quietly infesting all of America. They've made sure this process is done at a time when it escapes YOUR attention. Thankfully, the WSNF is on the case and appeared in Washington D.C. before Congress on YOUR behalf. Due to processes and other more important matters, the fee conspiracy will likely be detained another year, but believe ...

Suddenly I get an "oh crap" feeling when climbing.

I live in Alaska and have been climbing since before high school. I have tons of experience, it's one of my favorite hobbies.

But lately, at some point during a climb, I get...I wouldn't call it a panic attack, but at some point I get an "oh crap," sinking feeling in my stomach and I get nervous. I actually recently turned back from what I'd normally consider a cakewalk because I felt uneasy, though I'll ...

The Twelve Bens Connemara Ireland

Last weekend I was lucky enough to visit The Twelve Bens in Connemara. For mountains of a very modest height they pack a big punch. If you have never had the chance to visit I would really recommend them. Here is a link to my account of the trip, enjoy http://howlingmist.blogspot.ie/2014/04/ ... emara.html :D

Climbing in Little Switzerland

Planning a trip to the Pika Glacier in the Alaska Range first week of June. Weather permitting hopinf to do some alpine rock routes for several days. Wondered if anyone has been there at that time and what condition I can expect the glacier (crevasses) to be in. I know year to year is different but in general. Also what degree of bag would do and any other general beta a guy could use. Thanks ...
