Each year 2,000 to 4,000 Tibetans peacefully resist the oppression in their homeland by escaping across the Himalayas. Freedom. Alpine style.
Climate change is affecting people around the globe, and this is especially evident at the top of the world, around Mount Everest and other great peaks of the Himalayas.
Dirtbags are getting more and more creative in finding ways to prolong their lifestyle...
Yes, that is what I am proposing; THE CLIMBING LIFE free of the subjective ordinal.
Around a month ago my partner Dave and I came to Patagonia with absolutely no idea what, if anything, we'd be able to accomplish...
Don't get me wrong... I don't hate fun, but some of the absurd captions on climbing.com are more ridiculous than Tuesday Night Bouldering. Here's one I read today in Two Quick Ascents of The Fly: "Video still of Kevin Jorgeson about to soil his trousers while falling from the top of The Fly (V14) at Rumney, New Hampshire."

In a strange bout of jubilation, maybe I should share a blog that isn't mean. Just as I was starting to think that nothing climbing-related on the internet was funny, thanks to friends in the climbing industry who also happen to have far too much time on their hands, I was introduced to these...
If this is climbing in the limelight, sign me up—i don't think it could get any more humorous.

As human-powered outdoor recreation enthusiasts, we all need metal; from climbing carabiners and bike frames to trekking poles and ski edges. The problem lies with 19th century values and policy guiding 21st century high tech mining technology. The laws adopted in 1872 to govern prospecting with a pick and shovel and to help settle the West before the invention of the light bulb are the same laws in use today. These outdated laws place no regard for the new values and economic future of the west.
