Merry Christmas Climbers!

by Tom Markiewicz on December 25, 2008

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! Hopefully Santa Claus brought you some cool climbing gear for Christmas! If so, leave a comment and let us know what fun new gear you’ll get to play with in the new year.

    Oops, should have started this off by adding that my wife and I decided to get a new camera for Christmas. Hopefully that will mean new and better climbing pics on the blog!

    That’s funny, Tom! That’s my Xmas treat to myself, though I am still shopping. I miss the Canon Rebel I used to shoot with, but am thinking it’s going to be a little point and click for now… easier to pack up multipitch routes.

    I also treated myself to a pair of Patagonia shoes… they’re ugly (no offense, Patagonia) but they’re fuzzy inside with a fold-down heel so they’re PERFECT for the freezing cold climbing gym. My toes are staying toasty warm now, vs. belaying in my flip-flops in temps where I can see my breath!

    Merry Christmas, and keep up the great work, Tom!

    Thanks! I actually picked up a Canon Rebel XSi. So far it seems great. How were your experiences with the Rebel? How come you don’t use yours anymore?

  • Sara

    The Rebel is AWESOME. I shot several trips with that camera… over 700 images from my Red Rocks trip, 70 of which were good enough to album… and my Smith trip last February. I hauled it up to the top of routes to anchor in and shoot from above… I handled it carefully, but it held up great and took awesome pictures. Unfortunately, it wasn’t *mine*… I just had the privilege of shooting with it for a few months.

    After MUCH shopping, I decided on a Canon Powershot SD 890 point and shoot. I just got it last week, but so far I am SUPER impressed with it compared to my earlier point and shoots. One feature I had to shop hard for was a customizable timer that would take multiple shots (wait 10 seconds, then fire off 10 shots with a short delay)… some of the Canons have it, and this was one. Handy feature for solo bouldering photos…

    Enjoy the Rebel, I’m jealous! ;)


    What about bouldering in yosemite before the end of the year ? Snow ?

    I’m creating a new blog about literature ( what I’ve read, what I’m reading), but I’m having trouble thinking of a title. I like the idea of something having to do with an obsession with literature but I think bookophilia is on the average side. What do you think of Litophilia? Is it too similar to “lithophilia” Which means the love of stones? Any ideas? Thanks!.

    I have three blogs on tumblr under the same email address. How do I delete one of those blogs without deleting the other two?. Preferably, I’d like someone to answer whom has encountered this problem before and solved it without deleting their other blogs.. Thanks!.

    You’ll find some intriguing points at some point in this post but I do not determine if they all center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Excellent article , thanks and then we want more! Added to FeedBurner also
