Youngest female to climb lower 48 state high peaks

Pokemon Go ...on Summits?

Two days ago I nearly crashed my bike into a teen weaving back and forth across the bike path, eyes glued to his phone, apparently searching for Pokemon with his Pokemon Go game.

We hear allot what the man has to say, but what about the mountain? this is what I tried to answer in this video. Some friends of mine who are mountain climbers had very ...

Newbie questions for camping on top of mountains


I am an experience backpacking but have no climbing experiences. I am trying to learn how to camp on top mountains after class 2 or 3 climbing. My motive is to take sunrise and sunset photos. After tons of research, camping on top seems to be the only way to avoid climbing at dark. I know there are many other things I need to learn. So I am looking for some help. I want ...

Adventure Pass Gone & Park Free within 1/2 mi of TH

Good news on the fee front for California hikers and climbers that may be interested. Courtesy of the Western Slope No-Fee Coalition, which notified its members via email. Below is the text of that email announcement received June 27. Six California hiker groups sued and the FS settled. A huge win for The People! :D

6a climbing by 4 year old in gym


(2:30 Min)

He has no trainer or training group. What do you think?
Now he is 5, should he have training? or should he just continue climbing without somebody who is helping him?

Enough training?

So I'm planning on hiking Harney Peak in SD. I've been running 200 miles per week, doing 3,000 vertical a day on a treadmill, swimming 20 miles a week, bench press 400 lbs, and am covered head to toe in Columbia gear. Is this enough?
