I don’t know how else to describe these things. They’ve always got them. It’s like little pieces of flair they attach to their harnesses and or backpacks. None of it is useful too. Like they’ll take an extra locking biner up a sport route, or their grigri. Or they decorate their school bags with carabiners and Nalgenes. Carabiners are not accessories! I …

Everyone loves Halloween. Parties are happening everywhere, there is an abundance of free candy, and girls dress up in slutty outfits just because they can get away with it. As we get older though, the motivation to dress up seems to wear off a little. We can’t go door to door and get candy from sweet old ladies. We don’t have class Halloween parties to attend anymore. Our parents aren’t buying us our costumes anymore either. With that in mind I’ve come up with a list of climbing costumes anyone …

Seems that every city in the universe has a climbing gym, some better than others.  Out here in the front range, where every third person climbs 5.13, we are lucky enough to have 3 1/2 climbing/training facilities.  While all of them have their attributes, the new kid on the block, Movement, seems to have their shit pretty dialed in…

Whether it’s the Rifle Cleanup, the Red River Rendezvous, or the International Climbers Festival, climbing events are awesome. Usually, there is beer, dancing, lots of shenanigans and typically at least a few girls.  And often you end up spending a lot time wondering if you going to get laid. If only you knew the answer ahead of time, you could save yourself a lot time and energy, which might be better spent projecting instead of scheming how to get into some chicks pants that you have no shot with). To …

It’s an ugly sight. We all know that. That may be your first reaction when you see the veritable tidal wave of climbing shoes and beer bottles cascading from the ceiling as you enter the door. You’ll wonder where  the smell of feet is coming from and also why there is a thin layer of white dust on top of nearly everything. It looks as if the only clothes this person owns are jeans, t-shirts and mojo shorts which of course are haphazardly strewn about on the floor while the …

Everyone has nights out that leave you broken, tired and more or less hungover the next day. I believe the term is overconsumption, and my dad calls it “overachieving.” I, however do not prefer such negative terms. I prefer words like “awesome” and “dude, this is awesome.” Then again in the morning it seems like I forget how much “fun” the night before was. In any instance, when you wake up you’re throats scratchy from screaming at each other in the bar and smoking too many cigarettes, and you’re head …
