If you climb and you’re in the U.S. right now, chances are you’re either cowering from winter in a gym, living it up in Hueco (we hate you) or martyring yourself on your project in the freezing ass cold. This little video of features a couple of die hard winter boulderers—Luke Parady and Chad Greedy—attempting Boulder Canyon’s Super Proj in bitter conditions—and goes perfectly with a glass of warm whiskey on the couch.

Oh you know them when you see them. And if you don’t know the ways to identify them there is a really good chance you ARE the bumbler.

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.…

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…

No matter where you climb you can bet you’ll run into these people at some point in your climbing career. They suck. All of them. It’s true and I hate to admit that. If you don’t run into one of these people then you can bet you are the one you aren’t running into. And if you’re a girl don’t assume you’re the token hot girl either. There’s usually only one of you so you’re probably the Annoying Girl. Just…

Phil Schaal’s been killing it recently. In the past year alone, this Connecticut climber has ticked 15 V13s, including some rare repeats of hard East Coast lines—The Book of Bitter Aspects (V13) in Bradley, Conn., Agent Orange (V13) in the Gunks, and the Chelsea Smile (V13), Ty Landman’s new sit start to Divine Providence in Lincoln Woods.

But pissing on hard blocs hasn’t come easy for Phil, who’s gone…

Wow. Here’s another video. More to come today but this just made us laugh a lot. Also you can’t beat the name “Girl reaches orgasm while climbing.” Classic.

I have no idea what this thing is or what it’s all about but someone sent a link to this video and I thought, “Well that’s the dang funniest thing I’ve seen today.” So I’m posting it here for you all to see. Could be worth checking out since it involves at least three of the following: poop, climbing, sex, campusing

1. When free soloing, always cary a full rack. A hands free headset can’t hurt either.

You did it! You finally landed a date with that cute boy/girl of your choice. Well it’s not really a date, but you ARE going climbing together. And you’re pretty sure he/she likes you. I mean why else would they go climbing with JUST you. Lucky for you I’ve created a handy little guide for you boys and girls to make sure you make the right moves during your little sexual rock scaling adventure to create just the right mood…

The campfire is a great place for stories, beers, beers and laughs. It’s where we all find ourselves trying to regrow the skin on  our tips after a long day of pulling down rocks. Last night was no exception for our crew after the foosball table in the barn at Hueco Rock Ranch long lost it’s luster (a.k.a after Rick and his shit-talking lady friend owned us in a quick match). Very quickly the conversation around the fire digressed into…
