I was expecting to find out more here but to my great surprise nothing yet.
So here it is, today morning I found out on Josh's facebook account that he had a bad fall near the Banff area and just returned home with many injuries.

Here is a first mention of his accident :
"Josh is in Calgary, and his mom has spoken to a doctor at the facility. He has a spinal and collarbone ...

Mountain records (age)


I'm trying to find out if there exists an overview of the youngest people ever to climb various mountains? And will this be available online?
Also, do you think these exist for every country? I come from Denmark and I am searching for a record of the youngest danes on various mountains.

Hello there,

Hope your Friday went well and have an awesome weekend planned ahead!

New to the forum, and thinking about the climbing sports. As you can probably infer by my screen name, I do live in the Rocky Mountain region. My father, friends and I (being a fifth generation native) have spent a lot of time in the outdoors and love our resources in the mountains. Camping, some backpacking, fishing, a little hunting and ...

Life Insurance/Climbing

Random topic here but climbing related and might catch some interest among the regulars.

If you answer yes, and I did, you then are required to fill out an additional addendum to the application which asked surprisingly detailed questions. It asked the different types of ...

HR 5204 would authorize the Forest Service and BLM to charge fees for all public lands, for any activity, by any person, any time.
Details follow. Please TAKE ACTION NOW!

Why Do You Climb?

I have decided to tackle this age old question for my psychology capstone course. Part of the project involves a survey with open ended questions that lean qualitative rather than quantitative. I have gathered some great insights so far, but I really could use more information from high altitude climbers.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Hey guys, looking for some guidance.
I am a former Infantry Marine and current Police officer. 27 yrs old.
I am a big outdoor enthusiast as I hike/camp as much as I can. I live in Chicago and take frequent trips to Starved Rock state park and the Indiana dunes. I find hiking in the deep winter is more fun as its more of a challenge (deep snow, cold, wind, etc). BUT it seems Im ...
