A New Beginning - Eric Sethna
January 18, 2015 -  Eric Sethna

What a year it’s been! In April, I turned the page to a new chapter in my life: Post-graduation. After 4.5 years studying engineering at the University of Waterloo, I finally earned my Iron Ring and spot on the Dean’s Honours List. It’s a rush to be done! University was a character building experience. Aside from the forced learning experiences that come when one leaves the nest, I learned about a lot about myself. From studying to training to friendships to relationships, I’m older and wiser. When it comes to climbing, I was...

My first V14- Direct North. and Future Plans! - Giovanni Traversi
January 18, 2015 -  Giovanni

I recently completed Direct North V14 in Bishop, Ca. This is my hardest, proudest send to date. There are no words to describe how I felt to finish this boulder problem other than totally psyched!!! I have been climbing on the same boulder ( the grandma peabody) since I started working Thunderbird V11 a couple years back. Once i sent thunderbird, I knew that the famous Direction V13 was next. Direction took a ton of energy and time before i was able to send it. Attempts spread over a couple of seasons. Then one cold winter day it all...

The Problem with the Gegeneration Phase - Markus Eder

The saying “Rest days are the best days!” is not everyone’s opinion. I often have a big problem with these days. Certainly, these days can be used for meaningful activities – immerse oneself in different cultures, work (only if you have to…), read, drink coffee, eat good food, relax or get mind and body greedy for the next climbing day. On the other hand, these days could also be used for climbing instead of not climbing… a hard decision! On a climbing trip, I usually stick to a 2-1-rhythm, which means 2 climbing days followed by one rest...

This past term at school has certainly been action packed. Although school projects took much of my time, I was able to stay in climbing shape, and it was great to see more development with the Stanford climbing team. At the beginning of this year at Stanford, I, along with the others helping lead the team, thought that it would a good idea to have tryouts, just in case more people were to show up than we were expecting. When we first started the team back in 2012, we had a handful of really dedicated climbers who came to...

It’s already the sixth time that I am coming back to this mountain village at the foot of „Shivalinga“. By now, the inhabitants have gotten to know me, and also know what my friends and I am looking for in this remote region of the Himalaya. They can’t understand it though. The people in the village are adjusted to the scarceness of the land and its climate. They try to survive in these rough mountains of which they had to laboriously conquer every arable square meter of land. The only acreage that they cannot reclaim are the...

Western Gold - Nicholas Milburn

Western Gold - Nicholas Milburn
January 04, 2015 -  Nicholas Milburn

Over this Christmas break I went to the best climbing area in the country, the Southeast. There were a few boulders that I really wanted to get on and hopefully send while I was down there. One of them was Western Gold, V11. Jamie Emerson found this boulder many years ago and Jimmy Webb got the first ascent in 2008. Jimmy showed me this boulder a couple years ago and it has been haunting my dreams ever since. It has perfect slopers on a beautiful slightly over-hung face. It is an obvious line with a definite start and...
