Master's Thesis Master's Thesis

Hello everyone!
I am a student at the University of South Wales doing my Master's in Abnormal and Clinical Psychology. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with my thesis by filling out the survey. My thesis is based on rock climbing and craving. The results from the survey will be put to good use. We're looking at suggesting extreme sports as a therapeutic alternative.

Hiker/climber newbie: where to go in US/Canada?

I'm 26, recently turned to sports and hiked my first summit (Galdhoppigen in Norway, 2469 m above sea level)
I really loved it. And since I'm flying to California end of August, I would love to plan some hiking early september. I love large open spaces, amazing landscapes.. such things.
It could be basically anywhere in US and/or Canada, as long as internal flights are still not too expensive, and also that the starting ...

My name is Lucy Westlake and I am 12 years old. Does anyone know the record for youngest female to climb all of the lower 48 state high peaks? I started climbing the state high peaks at age 7.

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. I salute the fact that this game is bringing kids outside, though I wish they would be a little more aware of their surroundings. Will we be seeing a new generation of 'climbers' hiking up mountains, searching for digital Pokemon, with eyes ...
