Mayan Smith-Gobat Attempts Salathe Wall

Mayan Smith-Gobat Attempts Salathe Wall
October 12, 2010 -  Mayan Smith-Gobat

Since my last update my life has been dominated by the Salathe wall… my first experience on the headwall, the 5.13b (29) crux of the route,  was rather humbling. I had walked up to the summit of El Capitan, then rappelled down the top 100m of the route to top rope the crux pitches. It is quite possibly the most stunning top rope in the world, and definitely  the most amazing pitch I have ever worked on.

Carlo Traversi Catch Up…

Carlo Traversi Catch Up…
October 12, 2010 -  Carlo Traversi

My plan for this 2 month adventure was to give some sort of a write up on the blog about each day. So far I’ve been failing. But let’s get caught up and start from there… I have been in Switzerland for about 10 days now, and I must say, I am very, very impressed. The pure quantity of high quality rock is unbelievable. We have been climbing almost solely in Magic Wood, because Ticino has been too warm. Magic Wood is a large collection of boulders in a small, deep valley just below the tiny...

Elizabeth and Denise solo the West Slabs

Elizabeth and Denise solo the West Slabs
October 12, 2010 -  Elizabeth Hardwick

This past weekend my friend Denise and I made the trek up to the base of Mount Olympus in Salt Lake City to solo the locally famous West Slabs route (5.5, 1600+ ft). The entire route is one clean piece of bomber quartzite and we had a blast on the way up. It felt great to be able to climb so high so fast and move fluidly all the way up the giant slab. Plus this was a great rehab workout for my pulley injury. My Insights were the perfect do-all shoe for this route with a one hour...

Chris Danielson On the Road and Enjoying the New Boots

Chris Danielson On the Road and Enjoying the New Boots
October 11, 2010 -  Chris Danielson

I’ve just returned from the Nor’easter event in the picturesque New England town of Lincoln, New Hampshire and am getting ready for a lot of time on the road this fall. The Nor’easter competition was the finale event of the UBC tour and the fourth time in 2010 I’ve traveled with the USA Climbing Comp Wall. >We’re getting better and better at putting this monstrosity up, running a comp, and taking it down and though I can’t really say the process is light and fast, it’s getting there.

Pete Robins' 2010 in North Wales

Pete Robins' 2010 in North Wales
October 11, 2010 - 

I haven’t blogged yet so I thought I’d say what I’ve been doing over the past year, and how climbing has evolved for me recently. Bit of a rant I’m afraid. For the past few years, my climbing has taken a very different path - it needed to as I started to get bored going to the same old trad venues and doing increasingly more esoteric and arbitrary routes. At the upper-end of trad climbing, risking it all on-sight and 10 foot to the side of a splitter crack while your mate ignorantly eggs you on from...

Get to know Alex Sosa Manon

Get to know Alex Sosa Manon
October 11, 2010 -  Alex Sosa Manon

A little something to let you know who I am. My name is Alex Sosa Manon and I am 13 years old. I started climbing when I was 12 at my local gym that just opened up in brooklyn called Brooklyn Boulders. It was a hot summer day and my mom said there was a rock wall 5 blocks from my house. So I rode my bike over to Brooklyn Boulders and found myself more than a rock wall, a huge rock gym!
