Travel & climbing insurance for Interanational travel

So I am in need of travel & climbing insurance for a potential trip to Nepal in October. It is a requirement with the company I am planning on using. While I have been to Mexico and SA on climbing trips I didn't purchase any insurance for those trips so this is totally new to me.

Anything to look for or request? Any recommendations? They had Global Rescue as one company but seeing as how ...

help with grad school snowshoeing survey


My name is Beth and I'm a student in the Washington state Mountaineers Basic Alpine Climbing class. I'm also a graduate student at Seattle University studying Sport Management. I'm working with snowshoes.com and my Seattle U advisor to do a survey about snowshoeing.

Thanks a million!

TNF and...the Grateful Dead?

Getting some reading done, came across the following, and found it too hilarious - and bizarre - to not share. If it's old news, oh well.

Complete newbie here, looking for advice

Hi all, I'm 28 years old and I would like to start working towards some mountaineering. I climbed a fair amount in high school (just bouldering and sport routes), but it has been quite some time. In college I started playing rugby and got up to 240 lbs which made climbing not very feasible. It had always been a dream of mine to climb some of the higher mountains though, and even though my thoughts ...

Carabiner Coffee Company

Hey Everyone!

I'm throwing up a little post here about my coffee dreams. I started Carabiner Coffee Co. a little over a year ago in Summit county, CO out of my tiny apartment and my 71 VW van named Ol' Blue.

A Video Tribute to my Dad

My dad loved the mountains, I too share the same passion as him. We never had a chance to share the mountains as he passed away when I was ten months old. However to climb the exact route as he did was just like climbing with him. It was like he was holding the rope for me. Now through your whole life imagine all those emotions you experienced with him. To me, all those emotions ...
