I finally got around to watching last week’s Louder Than Eleven and ClimbingNarc‘s Talkshow #1 The Show With No Name.

It’s interesting, very professional, and has a few articles that aren’t regional and will appeal to all climbers. This is how Dead Point Magazine should […]

From Trotter: The climb was first freed by Seattle bad ass Ben Gilkinson, and Lauren Lee and I made the Second and Third ascents, back to back.
