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…

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…

You know it. I know it. American climbing. It’s awesome. Well… I haven’t exactly climbed out the country yet so I’m not sure if I’m an expert on that, but since ignorance occasionally seems to be another tenant of ‘Murkan culture I’m gonna run with it. In honor of Independence Day I’ve decided that we need some good old fashioned Americana in this post. So crack open a freedom bomb, read up, and enjoy the rest of the holiday by…

Have you ever seen a man with sun beams coming out his ass? Ander Rockstad is this man. The man is a beacon of happiness. When he gets sick he throws up rainbows and jelly beans. I’ve never seen anything like it. Dude is seriously psyched all the time.

We have absolutely no idea what twitter is. At all. It seems stupid. Tell a bunch of people what we’re doing? Why? Can’t I do that on facebook already without having another place to sign in? Why give status updates to a bunch of people that don’t really care anyway.

I’ll avoid all the blabber about the current economic situation since A) I don’t understand it, and B) I don’t really care. I just know it is apparently making money hard to come by. Since I do know at least that much about it I decided it was time to make a Cooking With Wig for the economically stressed climbers of the world who may need some ideas to help save money on little things like food. Use this recipe…

In the cold concrete world of Manhattan there isn’t much that satisfies climbers. I mean sure you can go to Central Park and piddle around on the little pebbles they call boulders, but to what end? I never got that much satisfaction from projecting routes with names like Sweat of the Rapist and turning down crack heads that ask questions like “So you’re climbing these rocks? You smoke rocks too?” Never the less there is one shining beacon in the…

So in conjunction with the article that our friends at Rock and Ice ran about our homestate (okie dab to DR and crew) I decided to give your little peepers something to drool over for a few hours. That and we are slowly going crazy over here because the snow just keeps dropping all over our precious little rocks making it impopssible to climb and since we don’t do that silly shit with axes and spiky shoes, this…
