With the weather turning towards winter, my mind has been drifting to thoughts of warmer climbing spots. I came across this video posted on Climbing.com of Paige Claassen climbing in Cuba, and I gotta say, looks pretty dreamy. It’s a long one, but if you are interested in taking a trip there, worth checking out. [...]
I’m a big fan of resoling my climbing shoes, it always just seemed wrong to be done with a pair after the rubber wears out. I have to admit, though, before watching this video, I was pretty clueless about the whole process. I had some assumptions, but the reality is a little different than what [...]

Came across this cool footage today, from the good folks over at Louder Than 11, of some new boulder problems from the Ice Caves up on Independence Pass. As hot it’s been, this is a great option to escape the heat in a really unique setting. Enjoy.
About a month ago, Arc’Teryx put out this great video of Grand Junction local Rob Pizem, a self proclaimed weekend warrior with a penchant for putting up new routes. Rob balances being a dad, husband and teacher, and still manages to get after it on the rocks. Sit back and enjoy a great tour of [...]
By now most folks are aware that Carbondale’s own Hayden Kennedy established the hardest pitch in Indian Creek this past March, with his ascent of the Carbondale Short Bus. Austin Siadak captured some great footage of Hayden on the send, though he makes it look so casual it’s hard to tell this is the hardest [...]
It’s been a wonderful and warm week here in Colorado, and we’re taking advantage of spring break to chase down some sunny sandstone.

Sterling has been putting out some great videos recently, and here’s another one to add to the list, this one with an interesting back story.

It’s mid winter, might as well keep the ice climbing stoke going! The North Face just released two new videos profiling their athletes Emily Harrington and Sam Elias, with some sweet footage shot at Vail and Redstone. It’s also cool to get some insight into how each of them approaches the sport, as they are [...]

Joe’s blog is one of the few pro blogs I read regularly, and this is a fun glimpse into his life as a climber. Enjoy! Joey Kinder – Living the Climbing Life with Sterling Rope from sterling [...]
