  • Roundup of Recent Climbing Gear Reviews
    Posted on Wednesday, February 4th, 2009 in Climbing Gear
    Months ago, I wrote how I thought it would be beneficial for the entire climbing community to read more gear reviews on the web. I’ve started to see many more since then and it’s a great trend. In the spirit of encouraging even more gear reviews, I decided to compile some of the recent ones here. Splitter Choss reviews the new Petzl Reverso 3 belay device as well as the DMM Offset Nuts.
  • Review of Pure, a Bouldering Film by Chuck Fryberger
    Posted on Sunday, February 22nd, 2009 in Bouldering
    Friday night I attended the world premier of Pure in Boulder. After watching the trailer and speaking with the filmmaker, Chuck Fryberger, I was highly anticipating Pure. I still had some apprehension though. As more climbing films are released, I’m starting to get the feeling climbers are becoming jaded. How many more ways are there to approach climbing films?Well, I was quite wrong in that regard.
  • Behind the Scenes of Black Diamond’s Business
    Posted on Monday, February 2nd, 2009 in General
    CNN Money has an interesting article on the business side of the climbing industry. It takes a look at Black Diamond and their founder, Peter Metcalf:Metcalf, who co-founded Black Diamond with a $744,000 investment and has grown it to reap an expected $90 million in sales this year, is readying for his biggest climb yet. He wants to double his revenues in the next five years.
  • ThinkClimbing, a Resource for Climbers on Twitter
    Posted on Monday, February 9th, 2009 in Featured
    As Twitter hits the mainstream, climbers are increasingly using the service to communicate and share. A few months ago, the Rock Climber Girl took the initiative to setup a wiki to keep a list of the growing number of climbers on Twitter.Unfortunately, manually maintaining a wiki was going to be too much work as Twitter’s growth continues. So I decided to take the idea a step further and create ThinkClimbing.
  • More Chicks, A Weekend at the Betty Ice Ball
    Posted on Thursday, February 12th, 2009 in Climbing Events
    Today’s guest post is from Jenn Fields, who writes at wasn??t sure what I??d get out of a weekend of ice climbing just with girls, because I??ve always climbed with boys. Of course I??d come away with sore shoulders, bigger calves and more mad girl-climbing skills, but what else would be on the table at a women??s weekend?

  • Behind the Scenes at ABS Nationals
    Posted on Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 in Bouldering
    This past Friday I had the opportunity to volunteer at the ABS Nationals. I’m not sure how they picked people for the various positions (pretty sure it was random), but I ended up being the judge for the first problem in the men’s open qualifiers.I mainly wanted to volunteer for two reasons. First, I wanted meet more local climbers. Second, I was interested in seeing some of the inner workings of a national climbing competition.
  • Carlo Traversi Discusses the Future of the Climbing Industry
    Posted on Wednesday, February 11th, 2009 in General
    Carlo Traversi discusses the future of the climbing industry and the different types of pro climbers interacting with the companies and the community. At this point in time, VERY few climbing companies have any clue what they are doing beyond making a decent product that sells enough to keep them afloat. I believe that much of this is due to BAD marketing techniques and BLATANT misuse of key athletes on their climbing teams.
  • The Monkey Traverse at Flagstaff Mountain
    Posted on Friday, February 6th, 2009 in Climbing Areas
    Since I’ve been unable to climb the past couple weeks while rehabbing my flexor tendonitis, I’ve been trying to use my camera more. Yesterday, while touring my visiting parents around Boulder, I caught some nice images of some climbers at the Monkey Traverse area of Flagstaff. The following shots are from a pull-off above the main bouldering areas. They show the highly trafficked Monkey Traverse and someone top-roping a climb on the face to the right and down the hill from Monkey.
