The Enchantments are around 7,000+ ft. up in the Alpine Lake Wilderness Area of the Cascades in Washington. These two basins are full of crystal clear lakes and a stunning 360 degree view of rugged crags. I was lucky enough to acquire one of few camping permits into this protected area and spend 4 days backpacking an 18-mile loop.
September is usually an excellent time to climb in Squamish. The days tend to be cold but still fairly dry, making those summer projects sticky enough to send. Unfortunately, the rain seems to have shown up a little early this year an we haven't had as many days outside as I would like. The few days we have gotten out, I've tried to make the most of.
We are proud to announce, that Five Ten® Team athlete Edyta Ropek has won European Championships in speed climbing, which were held on the 15th of September in Austrian City Imst. This is a really magnificent victory, because Edyta was defending that title, which she had won two years ago in Paris, France. So once again Edyta proved, that she is the fastest speed climber in Europe!
After a wonderful summer in the beautiful Canadian Rockies, it’s back to the grind at school. One more year, and I will be a real live Nurse. I grew up 45min from the Canadian Rockies, and my family used to drive out there every darned weekend to climb or ski or hike or camp among the majestic peaks. Going back this summer, I realized that it had been years since I spent any quality time climbing the lovely lime-stone faces the Rockies has to offer. Needless to say I was pretty darned psyched to get a part...
Slacken ist eine neue Trendsportart. Das funktioniert ähnlich wie das Seiltanzen, nur dass man auf einem kräftigen Gurt balanciert. Den kann man zwischen zwei Bäume spannen oder man kann auch übers Wasser gehen. Wie Slack-Profi Andreas Knaus.
Some of you may have noticed that jamespearsonclimbing.com recently went on permanent vacation. My website was always held just a little out of my reach by some friends back in the UK, which is part of the reason it had not seen an update for over 2 years! It was looking tired, was well past its best, and finally... well lets just say it died. Hold back the tears, all is not lost, for out of the ashes a phoenix will rise!
