New Gear Site and Peak Tracking

Hi Everyone--

Interesting goings on happening on Everest.

KATHMANDU: The government issued a directive last month to extend by five years all group permits that were issued to Mt Everest expeditions during the last spring season. This effectively means that the same members of the expedition will have to scale Mt Everest together within the next five years. If even one member of an expedition scales the mountain, permits of others will be cancelled.

Football talk in the workplace, blaaa!

Read at your own caution if you love to watch sports! At one time in my life I did like watching sports. That was until I discovered my true passion in life, climbing and mountaineering. Doing the 8-5 thing at work I frequently find myself at a loss of words when somone in the office says "hey what about those raiders huh?" I sit there for a minute and then say, "well, I don't really ...

Seeking the next challenge

Hi all, I've just joined the forum and am looking for some advice.

I have returned to mountaineering this year and have climbed Mont Blanc and Kilimanjaro. I'm now looking for a 6000m+ peak to attempt next year. I'm comfortable with crampons/ice axe etc but have no real rock climbing experience. Can anyone give me some suggestions as to what may be suitable?

I've so far been looking at Stok Kangri, Chimborazo and Aconcagua but ...

Heather Anderson (PCT) meets Jennifer Pharr Davis (AT)

I thought I should share this photograph with the hiking community. It's a queen of the west meets queen of the east sort of thing. Jennifer had her husband Brew and daughter Charlotte along. Heather and Jennifer had many questions for each other and it was neat to see the interaction. It was obvious that the two had looked up to each other for a long time.


Heather Anderson currently holds the unsupported speed ...

Im trying to find out what the biggest problems are for you: The climber.
