Stock Photos

Hi guys,

Bit of a random one I think but I am at a loss. I am currently looking for stock climbing photos of Chamonix, Andermatt, Engelberg, Glencoe and a few other places that slip my mind right this second. Do any of you have any suggestions? I tried Shutterstock with no real luck and there appears to be a lot of sites which sell bouldering photos but no trad. I work for a company ...

*NEW PODCAST* - Trip Report Podcast *NEW PODCAST* - Trip Report Podcast

In light of loving storytelling and hearing about the almost epics out in the backcountry, I've decided to start a PODCAST showcasing these stories. I plan on interviewing everyone from high profile athletes to the weekend warrior escaping the 9-5.

Who do you recommend (either high profile athlete or weekend warrior) we should interview and why? Would love some recommendations!

First episode in the coming weeks!

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.

Altimeter app

Hello everybody!

I'm an app developer and a few times a year I also go climb mountains.

If their is enough interest I will make ...
